Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Norwegian teenager Isak Hansen-Aaroen from Tromso.

The 14-year-old opted to sign for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team ahead of Liverpool and Everton after spending time on trial at all three clubs.

Manchester United signed Isak Hansen-Aaroen from Tromso having also trialled for Liverpool

Sportsmail reported in May that United had agreed to sign Hansen-Aaroen after being at United’s training ground complex. 

Hansen-Aaroen spent time with Liverpool in October 2017 before Manchester United invited him to training several times throughout 2018 after spotting him at the Audi Cup. 

Hansen-Aaroen must wait until August 22 next year, when he turns 16, to complete the move due to FIFA regulations over young players. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are aiming to build a long-term partnership with Tromso

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.’
