He doesn’t go into detail and reveal exactly when interested from the Red Devils arrived, but this in itself just show what a highly-rated talent we have on our hands in Almiron.
Here’s what Campos had to say when speaking on Paraguay TV about the Newcastle United new boy today:
“Manchester United was interested in Miguel Almiron.”
Interestingly, his agent also praised his maturity off the pitch, praising his ‘impeccable conduct’:
“He does not like to go out. He is a boy who likes to be at home.
“Miguel is a boy who has impeccable conduct.”
There was talk that the likes of West Ham and Spurs held interest in Almiron, with Napoli and Inter Milan also linked last month, but it’s quite something to hear that Man Utd were tracking him.
Let’s hope he can show us why there were several top clubs tracking him soon enough – starting against Huddersfield on Saturday!
