Rogelio Funes Mori is a 19-year-old striker who has recently been linked with a move to United. The Argentinian, who has been offered trials by Chelsea in the past, has lived in the States since he was 10-years-old but moved to River Plate last season. He won a football reality TV show, Sueño MLS, when he was 16.

“I really don’t know anything about what is being said about the chance of going to Manchester United,” Mori said. “All I know is by what is being said in the press. Every player dreams of having the chance to play in Europe and even more if it’s in the English Premier League, but I will have to talk about this with my agent. At this moment I’m enjoying the chance that I’ve been given playing in River’s first team in this championship that has just finished. And at this moment I’m enjoying my holidays.”
