And now Helsingborgs coach Per-Ola Ljung has confirmed the teenager will spend a week training with Manchester United.

Ljung revealed Andersson’s education had prevented the youngster from visiting United earlier. He said: “We thought it was appropriate to do it now so he does not miss anything in the school and that he could do it under his goodness.

“It’s fun for him and fun for the club. It was probably a long time ago Helsingborgs had a player at Bayern Munich and Manchester United in this way.”
