Ghana international Kamaldeen Sulemana has revealed his agent has spoken with Manchester United amid interest from Europe’s elite clubs.

Sulemana, 19, has reportedly caught the attention of the continent’s heavy hitters as he continues to impress in the Danish top flight for Nordsjaelland.

The teenage winger’s burgeoning reputation has culminated in recognition at international level and he has already been capped twice for Ghana.

His form at Farum Park led to representatives from Ajax catching him in action against FC Copenhagen earlier this week, in which he broke the deadlock in a 2-2 draw.

Sulemana revealed after the match that he was aware of Ajax’s presence at the stadium, even admitting he rejected an offer from the Dutch giants in January, before claiming Man Utd have been in touch with his agent.

He told Discovery+: “I knew [Marc] Overmars was coming [to the Copenhagen match].

“I have always had my motivation. I know they are interested in me and want me.

“They put a bid in for me in January. I said no, I can’t move. I wanted to be here and finish the season strongly.”

Quizzed further on speculation linking him to Man Utd and Bayer Leverkusen, he added: “My agent heard from both of them.”

Sulemana’s breakthrough campaign

The talented tyro has been simply sensational in the Danish Superliga this season, generating a reputation for his balletic stride and dribbling qualities.

Not only has he notched 10 goals and provided a further three assists, but his twinkle-toed exploits have culminated in him completing 114 take-ons, over double his closest challenger in the division (Louka Prip Andreassen on 54).

Sulemana’s nine goals scored from open play is bettered only by Brondby IF duo Jesper Lindstrom (10) and Mikael Uhre (13), while his 37 shots on target is the best in the Danish top flight this term, underpinning his devastating form in the final third.
