Polish midfielder confirms joining Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

Lukasz Bejger, Manchester United Youth Team

Manchester United have made their latest signing in the form of Lukasz Bejger. Bejger, 16 is expected to be a part of the United Youth Academy that in recent times has undergone an overhaul under former Manchester United Player and present youth team coach Nicky Butt. Bejger had his trial at United last January and it is reported that he will now sign a contract to be a part of the United Youth Squad. His contract terms are said to be same as the highly rated Angel Gomes.

Manchester United youth academy has been known to produce some exceptional talents, a trend that has not been kept up too impressively in recent years. But, since the appointment of Nicky Butt has seen the Red Devils snapping up some the best young talents of Europe.

Manchester United have an impressive streak of 3883 games, which is an eighty year old record, whereby an Academy Graduate has been a part of the playing day squad. A streak they intend to continue by bringing in fresh talents for the academy. The likes of Tahith Chong, Nishan Burkhat, Aliou Traore, Arnau Puigmal and several others have been inducted into the Manchester United youth setup in the hope of continuing the trend.

It has been reported that both the Manchester Clubs have been interested in the 16 year old. However, Manchester United have been able to see off the competition from their local rival and sign the young Polish defender.

Lukasz Bejger is a healthy 6ft 2inches defender, considering he is just 16 years of age. He primarily plays as a centre-back but can operate as a right back as well as a Defensive Central Midfielder. Bejger is a youth product of Lech Poznan to whom United reportedly had to pay £405k to acquire the centre-back. Lukasz Bejger had made his International youth team debut for Poland in an U-16 game against Scotland in September. Earlier this year, he even captained the U-16 Polish team against Moldova.

With the present United first team squad, it may not be too unrealistic for him to make a debut anytime soon. A frustrating pre-season tour has seen Jose Mourinho dearly miss some of his first team players. The availability of those players who went deep into the 2018 World Cup is going to be 100% only after two weeks of Premier League action. While fatigue is a factor, players like Nemanja Matic are injured.

Meanwhile, the defense looks in desperate need of cover with new signing Diogo Dalot and first choice right-back Antonio Valencia sidelined with injury. Jose may have to think about deploying certain young squad players at the right-back position. This could see youth squad players taking their place on the bench. Lukasz Bejger may just be one of them considering his versatility.

Although, chances may not come at a premium for the young centre-back right away, he seems to be more of a prospect for the future. To fill the boots of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, he will definitely have to work very hard to get his way up. Moreover, for the United youth set up, they will be hoping he can help them continue their tradition of producing a strong line of young talents.
