Football is a game where wonderkids come and go, some going on to become stars but others fading into obscurity. Scouts are always looking out for the next big thing, and three of the Premier League’s big dogs believe they may have found one in the northeast of France.
Maidine Douane is a name you have probably never heard of and that is because he is only 15 years of age and playing in the youth ranks at FC Metz. An attacking midfielder, Douane is making a huge impression and finished top scorer at the 2015 Cordial Cup, also being voted the tournament’s best player.
This caught the eye of Metz, who snapped him up, and he has continued to develop very well since. According to Foot Mercato, he was watched just a few days ago by the same scouts who have been observing him for quite some time.
And the French news portal has learned that the scouts came from Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool, three clubs with eyes all over the globe in search of football’s next superstars.
The Premier League trio have been very impressed by Douane and are seriously considering making approaches to Metz for him. The youngster is happy at the Ligue 1 club, because they have shown so much faith in him, but it remains to be seen how Metz will handle approaches by three wealthy English clubs.
