Transfer News: Crewe youngster Nick Powell elected to stay in the north west
Alleged Arsenal and Chelsea target Nick Powell has signed for Manchester United.
The 18-year-old had been linked with numerous Premier League clubs in recent weeks but the Crewe youngster, who scored a wondergoal at Wembley in the League Two play-off final against Cheltenham last month, elected to sign at Old Trafford.
“It really is a dream come true to be signing for Manchester United,” Powell said.
“I have had a great time at Crewe and I would like to thank them for helping me to develop as a player over the past 13 years.
“I’m excited about continuing my development with Sir Alex and the world-class players in the squad. The thought of making the step up to the Premier League next season is an exciting prospect.
“I can’t wait to get started.”
