Man United speaking to player’s father over transfer, has one of the leading assist rates in Europe

Sport Witness quotes Sport 1 as saying that Manchester United is reportedly interested in signing Felix Nmecha, another midfielder who is reportedly on their radar.

Who exactly is Felix Nmecha?
The 22-year-old has established himself as a crucial player for Wolfsburg throughout the course of the 2022–23 season, having played more games in the Bundesliga this year than he has in his whole career to date. The athlete responded by scoring three goals and providing five assists in 30 team choices despite playing in a more center position on the field.

The young athlete had a breakout year, and Nmecha is currently emerging as one of the finest in Europe at his position and among the Men’s “Top Five” big men based on statistics. For example, he ranks in the top 4% of players with an assist rate of 0.25 per 90, which is by far his best mark. It reveals his capacity to spot teammates in good circumstances and position them for fruitful possibilities. With 2.16 aerials won per 90, the midfielder is in the 93rd percentile for aerial strength. This shouldn’t come as a surprise because he is almost 6 feet tall.

After demonstrating his physicality and vision for Wolfsburg, he may now be given a shot somewhere this summer. Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United are reportedly likely to battle for his services this summer, with a price tag of about 15 million Euros (or £12.9 million), according to Sport 1’s Sport Witness.

Even though neither party has yet made an official offer, the Red Devils are said to have spoken to the player’s father over a prospective transfer to the Premier League. At this time, the player is unrepresented by an agent. According to other sources, Newcastle United is apparently interested in a trade.

When will Felix Nmecha’s contract expire?
The midfielder’s current contract with the Bundesliga club has two more years still to run even though he only joined Wolfsburg in 2021–2022. However, the curiosity seems to be high given how well he has done so far at the top level of German football.

One of the most offensive and attacking players in his position, the midfielder stands out with 1.81 shots per 90 minutes and 0.15 non-penalty goals per 90 minutes. Additionally, he has no qualms about moving forward to try to score or even assist a teammate. Nmecha is also unafraid to take on an opposing defender, as shown by the 1.27 successful take-ons he completes per 90, which demonstrates a strong capacity to outmuscle his opponent and move the ball. In other words, he is a player who would unquestionably provide the Red Devils some vigor and imagination in the field’s middle.
