Manchester United are reportedly plotting a move for young Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.
The England youth international was the subject of interest from the Red Devils this summer, according to the Sunday Express, with Sir Alex Ferguson opening initial talks over the Toffees starlet.
It's claimed Manchester United were told they'd need to pay in the region of £15 million for Barkley, who is being touted as the new Bryan Robson.
Ferguson has re-invented his side at Old Trafford this summer, adding young talent to the core of the Manchester United side.
Phil Jones and David de Gea were two summer signings, whilst Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck and Chris Smalling have all staked their claims for regular first team football for Manchester United after an impressive start to the campaign.
Four wins in a row have left Manchester United top of the Barclays Premier League table, and with Ferguson looking to strengthen further in January with Barkley, the future looks even brighter for the current champions.
