Manchester United sign Norwegian teenager from Tromso

Days after completing the signing of Hannibal Mejbri, Manchester United have added another youngster in their ranks by signing 14-year-old Norwegian Isak Hansen-Aarøen from Tromso.

Hansen-Aarøen is set to join United in August 2020, when he turns 16. As part of a proposed long-term arrangement between the clubs, United have sent academy talent Aidan Barlow to Tromso on loan until December.

Speaking after the agreement, Tromso sports manager Svein-Morten Johansen heaped praise on Hansen-Aarøen, "We think this is very exciting because we cooperate with a big club and we have already developed a good cooperation, and this has now materialised in that we borrow Barlow.

"It will be interesting to see his level up against our own boys at the same age, but we know we will get a very good player. This could be the start of a long-term collaboration that can give us a lot. We already have a very good dialogue.

"It means a lot to us and even though we now get a player, the most important thing is maybe we get close to them and gain new knowledge."
