Once the champions of England come in and want to sign you it’s difficult to turn down.
“Kaide is a fantastic player. I brought him into the first-team squad because he was showing the qualities I wanted in my players.
“He’s still a very young lad. But there’s been an offer there for Kaide, even before I was in this role.”
Kaide Gordon is a 16-year-old Englishman who can play as a winger and also attacking midfielder.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently occupying second position on the Premier League table with 40 points after 20 games, while Liverpool are occupying fourth with 37 points.
