Manchester United lead chase for ‘mini Messi’ Ryan Gauld but Liverpool and Real Madrid also in the frame

SPORTS By METRO | November 26th 2013

EPL: Manchester United are closing in on a £6million deal for a Scottish teenager dubbed ‘the mini Messi’.

Ryan Gauld is a 17-year-old midfielder who plays for Dundee United, and Old Trafford manager David Moyes sent a scout to watch the hot prospect set up all four goals in the Terrors’ 4-1 win over Partick Thistle at the weekend.

United want to sign Gauld in January but face competition from Liverpool who have also tracked the youngster, while Newcastle and Everton are also in the frame.

More worryingly for the defending Premier League champions, however, is news from Spain that Real Madrid have been alerted to the Aberdeen-born Gauld’s talents and could try to lure him into a dream move to the Bernabeu.

Moyes is busy planning a major transformation of the Manchester United engine room and has already introduced another exciting teenager, Adnan Januzaj, to regular first-team action this season.
