Man Utd sign teen sensation Isak Hansen-Aaroen from Tromso after loaning Adrian Barlow the other way


MANCHESTER UNITED have completed the signing of 14-year-old rising star Isak Hansen-Aaroen.

The Tromso player had trials at both Liverpool and Everton but opted to join the Red Devils.

Hansen-Aaroen, a promising Norwegian, cost United £90,000 with Aidan Barlow heading in the opposite direction on a loan deal.

Reported by the Daily Mail, Hansen-Aaroen was convinced by United after having a tour of their training ground.

Fellow Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also thought to have played a big part in his decision to reject rival Premier League clubs.

As the player is under the age of 16, United will need to wait until 22 August next year for him to officially join the club.

Hansen-Aaroen wasn’t even born when club legend Wayne Rooney signed for Manchester United.

Tromso sports manager Svein-Morten Johansen said: “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.”
