The Swedish international has already played more than 60 games for the Turin outfit at such a tender age. He has scored eight goals and provided eight assists across all competitions during his time with the Bianconeri. Manchester United were believed to have a substantial interest in the youngster but it did not lead to any concrete deal.

Dejan Kulusevski is still on the radar of Manchester United Jadon Sancho has also found it tough to get going at Manchester United ever since he made the £73m switch to the PL club.

This has taken a severe toll on the attacking department at Old Trafford.
Kulusevski could be an exciting future asset to the club. His experience at the top and in Europe could be handy while competing against the top teams. The 21-year-old also brings a certain versatility with him. He can play as a winger as well as a midfielder which could come in handy in crunch situations.
