Manchester United have handed a trial to Swedish starlet Linus Sjoberg. The 15-year-old midfielder is currently with Vasteras but he has been spotted by United's Scandinavian scouting network. The Premier League champions have now made an offer and Sjoberg is expected to link up with United on trial later this summer. "You have to be cautious dealing with the social and footballing parts as the social environment is important when you are younger," agent Martin Klette told Fotbollskanalen. "There are both good and bad foreign clubs as there are good and bad Swedish clubs. "People have a tendency to focus on younger players that have had problems abroad and forget that there are very good clubs to grow in abroad."
