Sources: Man United rising star Guadagno in advanced talks to join Euro club permanently
Man United goalkeeper Johan Guadagno is in advanced talks to join FC Copenhagen, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Sweden youth international, 18, is heading out of Old Trafford two years after joining from IF Bromma.
A United source has told Football Insider that Guadagno is negotiating the terms of a three-year contract with Copenhagen.
Guadagno is way down the pecking order at Old Trafford and managed just nine league appearances for the club’s Under-18s side last season.
He shared the gloves with Radek Vitek and Dermot Mee as United finished second in the Under-18 Premier League north division.
The former Sweden Under-16 international would have made the step up to the Under-23s side next term.
