Recent reports from England have seen Manchester United linked with RB Salzburg forward, Patson Daka.

Who is Patson Daka?

Daka, 21, has been plying his trade in Austria with Salzburg for the last three years.

The forward joined Salzburg after leaving his home country of Zambia.

Daka didn’t have an overly impressive start to life with Salzburg, often lining out for their under-19 side.

However, the 2019/20 campaign saw the African firmly cement himself as an integral member of Salzburg’s attack.

All told, Daka garnered 31 appearances in the Austrian Bundesliga last time out.

In said games, the centre-forward managed to net an impressive 24 goals and provide eight assists as Salzburg cruised to their eighth-straight league title.

Daka also managed to gain some valuable Champions League experience in 2019/20, notching six appearances in the competition.

Man United linked with Daka

Now, on the back of by far and away his best season in European football, Daka appears to have garnered interest from a Premier League side.

The outfit in question, according to reports from England, is Manchester United.

According to the Sun, the Red Devils are weighing up a move for the 21-year-old, who is also believed to be being tracked by United’s rivals, Liverpool.

In terms of a fee for Daka, the Sun claim he could set any potential suitor back upwards of £20m.

Such a fee doesn’t seem like too much for a club of United’s stature, though it may be something of a risk given Daka has zero experience in any of Europe’s top-five leagues.

Daka has just under four years remaining on his current Salzburg deal.
