Premier League side, Manchester United have received a major boost in their pursuit of Mohammed Salisu with the youngster reportedly refusing to sign a new contract at Real Valladolid.
The Red Devils have been impressed by the 20-year-old by the scouts and are readying a move after learning of his £10million release clause.
The La Liga outfit are eager for him to sign a new contract but it appears the player is holding out for a move to the Premier League after refusing to put pen to paper on a new deal.
