Manchester United have handed teenager Mats Daehli the perfect birthday present - a professional contract at the club. The Red Devils beat off competition from Bayern Munich, Ajax and a number of Premier League clubs to capture Daehli to sign him from Norwegian side Lyn. The 17-year-old has impressed the coaches at Carrington enough to be rewarded with a new deal with the champions. "He signed the contract on his birthday today," his agent Jim Solbakken confirmed to VG. "He said it felt terrific and there are no doubts he deserved it."
