Manchester United eyeing Robbie Cook move

Manchester United are reportedly keen on signing 17-year-old highly-rated Australian goalkeeper Robbie Cook this summer.

According to a report from The Sun, Manchester United are hoping to sign 17-year-old Perth Glory goalkeeper Robbie Cook, and they are looking to hijack Sunderland’s move for the highly-rated prodigy.

Cook is highly rated by the Manchester United scouts, and it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils can get the deal done. The Australian goalkeeping sensation would be a quality long-term investment for the club, and he could develop into an important first-team player in the coming seasons.

Manchester United have a proven track record when it comes to nurturing young players, and they could help the 17-year-old improve with coaching and game time. The Red Devils have also shown interest in other Australian prodigy, including James Overy, who has joined the club.

The opportunity to join Manchester United will be quite attractive for the teenage sensation as well. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the 17-year-old will look to make his mark with them in the coming seasons.

Robbie Cook would be a future investment

The youth goalkeeper could be an important part of the Manchester United youth setup next season. The Red Devils have a tremendous pool of young talent at the club, and they are clearly looking to add to it. They could provide the Australian with the clear pathway for his development.

He is likely to be available for a reasonable fee, and it remains to be seen whether Manchester United can get the deal done. Championship outfit Sunderland are keen on the player as well, but joining the Black Cats might not be as appealing for the player unless they are willing to provide him with first-team assurances.

The 17-year-old is yet to feature for Perth Glory. So, it is fair to assume that he is not ready to start in the EFL Championship or the Premier League. He will be a part of the youth team at both clubs. So, a move to Manchester United would be a no brainer for the player. Working under quality coaches at Manchester United could accelerate his development, and it would be the ideal step in his career right now.
