‘The Next Solskjaer’ Is Old Trafford Bound

Moroccan-Norwegian striker, Mohammed “Moa” Abdellaoue, has been linked with Manchester United in reports from Norway today.

The 23-year-old has caught the attention of several top clubs, but it is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s agent, Jim Solbakken, has helped put United at the front of the queue. The Norwegian international had previously been linked with a £3 million to Dutch side FC Groningen, although now United seem favourites, with a trial likely to be offered.

Moa scored a couple of goals in his team’s 4-1 win over Norwegian champions, Stabæk, in the Norwegian Cup, where plenty of English scouts were present.

“We can’t comment on anything before we have anything formalised,” Valerenga director Pal Breen told Verdens Gang.

The player’s personal advisor Erik Moe also refused to comment on the United offer. “This is up to Valerenga to comment,” he said. “Moa has only one focus now, and that is the international against Ukraine on Wednesday. It is important.”

    Looks like a great bit of business .

  2. knut says:

    this is one of the most stupid rumors of the season. he doesnt even stand out as a great player in the norwegian premier division. i would not bet on him to make the grade in the wankership either

  3. mauly says:

    Looks good in the video, both feet and a couple of good finishes, reminds me a little of Thierry Henry!

  4. james f says:

    I say agree with him and then let him go to Chelsea for a silly amount of cash, like we did with the last “super-talent” from Norway.

  5. Andreas says:

    Well James, the last super-talent from Norway turned out to be the motor in a very well running Chelsea-machine…

    Moa is a very good player in Norway, and I expect him to leave for a bigger league this winter. If it’s England or another I’m not sure of, but I’m quite sure he would make it.

  6. Haakon says:

    Lol James I agree. He’s nowhere near good enough for United.

    like we did with the last “super-talent” from Norway.

    Should’ve been

    like we did with the last super-talent from “Norway”.

    looks like tevez is gonna get more more worried.

  8. Sam says:

    smith, think fergie pointed that out to him when welbeck scored!!! watching the video and there were a few ole-esk finishes there. But fuck, gonna be a long time til an ole-type player comes along. Saw him score that bastard against blackburn and fell in love with him then. I don’t go for ‘favorite’ players but ole made that hard the loveable tyke

  9. taehr says:

    Dunno what to say bout the player but love the soundtrack!!!

  10. Tony_Oldham says:

    If he turns out to be half than person never mind player that Ole is than iwould have him at Old Trafford. 20ledgend.

  11. Flatulenz says:

    After the training yesterday. Before the Ukraine-Norway match, Moa was hot…The Norwegian keeper consider to retire after the training, Moa scored 5 goals in 6 attemps. Hangeland, playing for Fulham, told the Norwegian media that Moa is out of this world…The same said Riise.
