Manchester United reserve team manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken of his interest in bringing County youngster Sam Barnes to the Old Trafford club.

Barnes, twin brother of County right-back Louis, impressed the Norwegian United legend in The Red Devil’s 1-0 win over a youthful County side in the Manchester Senior Cup earlier this week.

And Solskjaer, in charge of nurturing the younger talent at Old Trafford before their move into the first team squad, was quoted in The People as saying he will ‘recommend Barnes to Alex Ferguson’.

‘He’s strong, reads the game well and has good pace.’

‘I’ll definitely be recommending him to the gaffer, but to be fair a number of the Stockport side did well.’


Eeek. Just another young talented County player being sold on for peanuts?
