The 19-year old Norwegian, who joined United as a teenager back in 2008, will further his development in the Bundesliga with Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl confirming a deal was close to being done.
”We have an agreement with Manchester United for a loan of one year. United presented very extensive contract work because they care intensely about their players and would like to stay in constant contact with us,” he told the club’s official website.
”The contracts must be translated and checked, that’s now going back and forth between the lawyers of the two clubs. Our goal is to have him in Bad Worishofen next Monday.”
