MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Roony Bardghji.
The 18-year-old star burst on to the Champions League scene in Copenhagen’s dramatic 4-3 victory over the Red Devils.
Bardghji scored the winner in the 87th minute to leave United in danger of crashing out of Europe.
Despite his young age, he has already made 66 first-team appearances and he has scored ten goals in 23 games this season.
The winger has been tipped to become a future star and he has been snapped up by agency CAA Base.
His new representative Christian Emile said: “He’s one of the most exciting talents in the world and also the future of Swedish football since Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“It’s natural that he is being monitored by major clubs.”
On the chance of him leaving Copenhagen, Emile added: “It’s too early to say now but one thing is for sure, you’ll get used to seeing Roony perform on the biggest stage.”
Man Utd, Chelsea and Newcastle are all reportedly keen on signing the wonderkid.
