Jhon Durán became the youngest international signing in MLS history last winter when he joined the Chicago Fire in February at the age of 18 from Colombian side Envigado. The striker also became the second-youngest goal scorer in the history of Colombian first division at just 15-years and 263 days back in 2019.

The teenager had a breakout campaign with eight goals and three assists in 23 appearances and he earned his first international cap for Colombia earlier this year. Durán came off the bench replacing Radamel Falcao in the 46th minute in Colombia’s 4-1 win over Guatemala in a friendly during the last international window of the year.

Durán linked with a move to Europe

His performances have awoken the interest of several clubs in Europe ahead of the winter international window and Durán might not return to the Fire for the 2023 MLS campaign. According to outlets in the UK, Liverpool and Chelsea are closely following the development of the Colombian teenager and Manchester United is the latest team to consider a move along with sides in Spain and Germany.

The Major League Soccer are reportedly asking $10 million plus add-ons for any team interested in signing Durán and plenty of teams could make a bid for the MLS young Player of the Year nominee.
