Manchester United turned down the chance to sign future West Ham teammates which would have been bargains.

Undoubtedly, Mohammed Kudus is one of the most exciting talents in world football. He is the complete winger possessing pace, strength skill, brilliant finishing and so much more. 

Given how good he has been, the £38 million that West Ham paid for him seems like a steal, but it turns out that Manchester United could have had him for even cheaper. Football Insider reports that the Red Devils could have signed him for just £6 million back when he was playing for FC Nordsjaelland. Not only would he have made them a healthy profit if they decided to sell him, but he would also easily get in their current starting XI. 

However, it is not just Kudus that they missed out on signing, as they could have signed fellow Ghanian wonder-kid Ibrahim Osman. The 19 year old is still playing for the Danish side, but he has been heavily linked with a move to East London. Again, they could have acquired his services for just £6 million. Well, he is already valued at £15 million and this is only going to go up as time goes on.

Both players have enormous potential and Manchester United will be kicking themselves that they did not sign the duo when they had the chance. The Hammers on the other hand will be ecstatic if they can get their hands on Osman as well. 

Our Irons could end up with two absolute bargains on either wing and that is all thanks to the fact that one of the biggest clubs in the world simply could not see the talent that they had.
