Young Dane in contract talks to escape United lure

Viktor-FischerAjax are due to open contract talks with rising star Viktor Fischer amid renewed interest from Manchester United.

Fischer has enjoyed a stunning start to his Ajax career, scoring five goals in his first 10 games. That’s faster than former Ajax luminaries Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who took 11 matches, and Marco van Basten, who needed 13.

United have kept tabs on Fischer for some time and the forward is seen as one of the brightest talents at Ajax for some time.

The 18-year-old is already capped at senior level by Denmark and he has a contract at his current club until 2014.

United’s interest has led Ajax to bring forward their plans to talk with Fischer over a new contract – and luckily for them, he’s ready to commit.

“I hope that we can talk about my contract as that is what I want,” he told AD Sportwereld.

“I play in front of 53,000 people and Ajax is one of the top European clubs. For a young player like me, it could not be better.”

    We would have to sell Macheda to buy this kid.

    I have little to no hope that Macheda is gonna come good. Lets just sell him. He has one more loan spell ahead of him. If this loan term doesn’t produce any results I say lets cut our loses.

    Fischer looks like he has two great feet. I couldn’t tell from this video whether he is left footed or right footed. He made some decent crosses with is left foot quite comfortably but then when he’s in front of goal he shoots with both. He shot more with his right than with his left in this reel but he looks solid on both. When he had an option to shoot with either his right or left he seemed to prefer his right so he’s probably right footed.

    And he is so good on the ball. Wow, he is great on the ball! His close control is superb. He definately looks like a world class talent.

    I say lets get him!

    As things stand we have Chicharito and Henriquez as the next generation of United strikers to follow Rooney and van Persie.

    Welbeck still needs to prove he’s United quality.

    Lewandowski or Fischer(if he fulfilled his potential) would be welcome additions.

    I just read a piece on the United website where Andy Cole says this crop of strikers can’t be compared with the 1999 vintage but they are none the less “very very special”

    I don’t know about that. van Persie and Chicharito are the only ones banging in goals when they’re asked to.

    Rooney’s missed a couple penalties. Welbeck is behind a couple defenders in the goals scored stats.

    I would rush to call them special.

    Yes ofcourse they are top quality strikers them all.

    But I am so tempted to say that Welbeck is the weak link.

    But I won’t say that.

    Maybe being positive in a 50/50 situation is how you cast a prophecy of success. . .

      I guess the question is……would you be confident watching Welbeck come off the bench with 10mins to go in a crucial match knowing he’ll bag the one glorious chance he might get.

      I would’ve put my house on it with Ole, my car with Teddy but probably only my United underpants on Welbeck…..tells its own story I think!

      (that doesn’t mean I don’t think he’s got talent yadda yadda yadda, it’s just that right now he’s hardly lethal is he!)
