Hansen-Aaroen has been plying his trade in Tromso’s academy and is currently regarded as one of Norway’s top prospects.

The 14-year-old, who had brief stints with both Merseyside clubs, recently underwent a trial at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground.

And according to iTromso, the wonderkid impressed the Red Devils enough for them to snap him up.

It’s claimed United will pay Tromso £90,000 for Hansen-Aaroen’s services, though he won’t be able to join their academy until his 16th birthday due to FIFA rules on young players moving abroad.

United are looking to build a long and fruitful relationship with Tromso, so much so they’ve sent 19-year-old Aidan Barlow the other way.

Tromso sports manager Svein-Morten Johansen is delighted with the partnership, saying: "We think this is very exciting because we cooperate with a big club and we have already developed a good cooperation.

“And this has now materialised in that we borrow Barlow.

"It will be interesting to see his level up against our own boys at the same age, but we know we will get a very good player.

"This could be the start of a long-term collaboration that can give us a lot. We already have a very good dialogue.

"It means a lot to us and even though we now get a player, the most important thing is maybe we get close to them and gain new knowledge."

United’s signing of Hansen-Aaroen comes nine months after they first began talks with Tromso.

"We have had very positive discussions with Manchester United,” said Johansen.

"Of course there is a long way to go, but we are working well with Isak's family about an agreement. We are positive that this will be good for all parties.

"In the first instance, we are looking at some kind of cooperation agreement, where the goal is to develop the player so that he may end up going over and playing for them.

"Isak has always been a good player, and he is a sensible lad. He is good for his age, and although there is a long way to go he has every reason to succeed.”

Manchester United will be back in action on Monday night, travelling to Molineux to take on Wolves.
