Transfer News: Manchester United interested in Tottenham star Oliver Skipp

According to Fichajes (h/t Daily Star), Manchester United are keen on signing Oliver Skipp from Tottenham Hotspur. 

The midfielder has been impressive and has become a fan favourite at Tottenham. The 21-year-old not only covered for his injured teammates but also put in several eye-catching performances.

The English midfielder completed 23 appearances across all competitions in this campaign, a massive achievement for an academy graduate. It is good to see him carry on from where he left off while on loan at Norwich City last season.

Tottenham Hotspur starlet Oliver Skipp has been giving top-notch performances in this campaign.

It is believed that Manchester United have shown an interest in signing the English star. The Red Devils feel that Skipp would come cheaper than Declan Rice, with whom Ralf Rangnick’s team have been heavily linked. 

However, United wouldn’t have a free run even if they pursue their interest as Newcastle United and Bayern Munich have also been tracking the 21-year-old. Losing such a talented player is not something that Spurs will want to go through.

Giovani Lo Celso was sidelined for several matches and couldn’t provide any help during Tottenham’s covid crisis earlier in the previous month. On the other hand, Tanguy Ndombélé, Dele Alli, has struggled to put up any consistent performance in this term. In addition, Ryan Sessegnon also got injured in the last week of December and had to be sidelined. Antonio Conte was able to manage the tricky phrase due to the services of Oliver Skipp.

Skipp and Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg has been regular starters and have shown why they deserve the place. 

In his recent press conference, The Italian manager suggested that there could be further Covid-19 complications in the coming days as Tottenham is waiting for several players’ RT-PCR reports. Therefore, if a midfielder returns positive, it’d be difficult for the manager to manage the situation.

Therefore, any move involving Skipp in the January transfer window seems improbable. On the other hand, the 21-year-old is one of Spurs own and has shown he could compete for a position in the team. So, the North London board has no reason to sell such a quality young player in the summer.
