Scholes sent on £5m United scouting trip – report

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have sent Paul Scholes to watch Huddersfield youngster Jordan Rhodes, according to Metro, with the youngster impressing with his form in League One and abroad.

Rhodes has scored nine goals in his last four matches, as well as a hattrick for the Scotland Under 21 side.

And United have reportedly been so impressed by the 21-year-old that they have insisted Paul Scholes himself go and make his own judgements on the starlet.

Scholes was in the stands as Hudderfield drew 2-2 with Scunthorpe United, and Rhodes scored yet again for his club, leaving the United legend full of praise for the wonderkid. Scholes was also keen to take a look at Oliver Norwood, who is currently on loan at the club from Old Trafford.

United would reportedly have to shell out £5 million for Rhodes, with Huddersfield chairman Dean Hoyle warning big clubs that he won’t leave the club on the cheap.
