Young Manchester United striker Josh Bohui is being targeted by Barcelona, report The Mirror.
It may sound odd, but United should let him go.
The standard to break through at United is as high as ever, and Bohui has not shown he has what it takes.
He was substituted at half-time against Aston Villa for the under-23s this week.
Bohui’s career record at under-23 level reads at 32 games and three goals.
Six in 12 UEFA Youth League games looks a little better, but Bohui is nowhere near ready to push for the first team.
He is 19-years-old. At his age, Marcus Rashford was already starting for United and England.
That is not to say he could not bloom, but if there is one youth striker who deserves a chance then it is Mason Greenwood, not Bohui.
The Mirror‘s report claims Bohui has rejected United’s offer of a new contract, with his current deal expiring in June. Monaco and Barcelona are interested.
Perhaps it might come back to bite United later on, and the club should make him one last ‘take it or leave it deal’, but they shouldn’t push the boat out.
If he doesn’t go for it and fancies his chances at Barcelona, good luck to him.
