Ole Gunnar Solskjær has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.

The Mexico international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Solskjær wants to target in the winter transfer window.

According to Teamtalk, “Manchester United are interested in a January move for Mexico and Leon striker Jose Juan Macias, according to reports in Spain. Marca believe that the 20-year-old, who has scored 16 goals in 28 appearances since joining Leon on loan from Guadalajara in December, is a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – whose options up front are limited following the summer departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez. However, United are not alone in their interest, as Mexican source Record claim that Borussia Dortmund and Real Betis scouted Macias in a recent international win over Trinidad & Tobago, as he scored on his senior Mexico debut.”


Guadalajara would be wise to keep the Mexico international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Manchester United.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Manchester United come calling for Jose Juan Macias this winter.
