Teenage Manchester United forward Noam Emeran is in line for a new contract at Old Trafford, according to Ed Aarons of the Guardian.

Emeran apparently is the subject of transfer interest from elsewhere, including Spanish giants Barcelona, ​​despite their financial troubles.

Bayer Leverkusen, who signed Timothy Fosu-Mensah from United in January 2021, are apparently so keen but Emeran is set to remain at Old Trafford.

He has a goal and two assists to his name from 11 youth appearances across all competitions this season, as per Transfermarkt.

The start of his season was disrupted by the injury which cut short his 2020/21 campaign, and bit into the start of this one.

Emeran has played mainly on the left-wing, and has recently been involved with first team training, including during the recent international break with many senior stars away.

His progress at United has been hit by injuries, and those problems meant Emeran missed the entirety of the 2019/20 season as well.

It is to be hoped that he can stay fit now and kick on, impressing whoever the new long-term manager of the club turns out to be.

Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino both have reputations for blooding young talent and Anthony Elanga has shown the route to the first team this season.
