Red Devils, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Liverpool are all reportedly interested in West Ham Utd starlet Benicio Baker-Boaitey as he’s said to be ready to leave West Ham United.

The 16-year-old defender has featured in the U18 Premier League for West Ham United this campaign, and it appears as though his form and early promise has attracted plenty of attention even though he hasn’t yet signed a professional contract.

The youngster has told West Ham United that he won’t pen a deal with them when he turns 17 and so that has sparked interest from across Europe with Bayern, Barcelona, Man Utd and Liverpool all specifically mentioned in the report as potential destinations.

Given the calibre of those teams, that arguably tells a story in itself about the talent and potential that Benicio possesses, as he must surely be doing something right if he has some of the biggest clubs in Europe eyeing a swoop for him before his 17th birthday.

The report above suggests that his time at West Ham United is likely to come to an end, and so it remains to be seen which of the four clubs named above are able to land his signature and pay a €250,000 compensation fee.
