If Manchester United would like to lure Evan Ferguson to Old Trafford, this weekend could be absolutely crucial.

Evan Ferguson really does look like one of football’s next big things. The Irish forward is just 18 years old but is already scoring goals for fun – including most recently a stunning hat-trick against Newcastle United.

Brighton have an absolute gem on their hands, but for how long? Manchester United have already been heavily speculated to be interested in him and what’s also telling is that he’s a boyhood Red Devil.

If Erik ten Hag really is serious about securing the signature of this generational talent – then this weekend could prove absolutely crucial.

Ferguson now in contention to start

It was speculated that Ferguson may be out for this weekend. He missed the international break due to injury, but a recent report from The Athletic has said the Seagulls are hopeful for him to start.

Bad news for United – due to this immense talent, but fans should take this as an opportunity to sway the forward over to the red side of Manchester.

United fans need to show Ferguson a buzzing Old Trafford

Imagine, as a boyhood United fan walking out into a packed Old Trafford, you hear the crowd roar and look onwards towards the Stretford End. The feeling is unimaginable.

Fans need to make sure that this is a feeling Ferguson wants to feel every single week.

This weekend could be the difference in persuading Ferguson that United is an option for his career. Believe us, he’s that good of a talent, if we don’t move for him quickly – someone else certainly will.

By no means are we saying to actively go and show him support, but we need to create an intense atmosphere that the striker will be desperate to play alongside – not against.

It’s going to be an intriguing, tough fixture. Let’s hope the Red Devils come out with a win and Ferguson comes out with a mindset firmly on Manchester.
