Norwegian youngster who shocked Hummels wants Man United move…

Matt Stanger

“What the f**k?”

That was Mats Hummels reaction on Thursday evening when he was told that Borussia Dortmund’s Europa League tormentor, Rafik Zekhnini, is only 17.

The young Norwegian winger played a stormer against the 2013 Champions League finalists as Odd BK almost produced a huge shock – only to lose 4-3 in the end.

Hummels was mightily impressed with Zekhnini, who has now been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs.

One of those is Manchester United, and the youngster is keen for a move to happen.

“I cannot say where I’ll be in five years,” he said. “I’m going to give everything, every day, so we’ll see where I end up.

“In my dreams, Manchester United top the wish list.”
