Man Utd set to miss out on Peterborough whizkid Edwards after snubbing Sir Alex advice

Manchester United are set to miss out on Peterborough whizkid Ronnie Edwards.

The 19-year-old central defender was recommended to United by Sir Alex Ferguson last year, with the Posh managed by his son, Darren.

The club ignored Sir Alex's advice and now a host of clubs are leading the way for Edwards' signature, per The Sun.

RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund are currently ahead of English clubs Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

Edwards could reportedly cost between £15m and £20m.

There have no shortage of onlookers for Edwards, with 98 scouts attending a recent England U19 game to watch the up and coming star.
