Manchester United have secured the signature of Slovakian wonderkid Martin Svidersky, fending off competition from six clubs in doing so.

The 15-year-old has been on a journey around Britain, Germany, and Italy in recent weeks, as he attempted to find a club where he could take himself to the next level.

He has undergone trials with United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Celtic, Manchester City, Inter Milan, and Dortmund, but the Old Trafford giants have won the race for his signature.

The Slovakian youngster had been at Presov, a club in his native country, and will now move to United after agreeing a three-year deal with the club that will run up to 2021.

Svidersky is impressively fluent in English, and can also speak French, German, Greek, and his mother tongue – Slovakian. The youngster is a midfielder, and is expected to join up with United’s U-18 side, managed by Kieran McKenna, in the upcoming season.

He isn’t the only Slovakian on United’s books at the moment, with 18-year-old goalkeeper Alex Fojticek also joining the club’s ranks.

United have been undergoing a massive recruitment drive since 2016, spearheaded by former academy graduate Nicky Butt – a member of the legendary Class of ’92.

His appointment has seen new life breathed into the academy, with a host of new youngsters joining the club, as the Red Devils look to re-establish themselves as one the best in the world.

Manchester United are desperate to earn back that title, after their U-23 side was embarrassingly relegated to Premier League 2 earlier this month.
