Manchester United scouting Heerenveen striker

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are keeping tabs on highly-rated Heerenveen starlet Bilal Basacikoglu, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 18-year-old striker has been scouted on a number of occasions by delegates from the Premier League champions, prompting rumours of a possible January move to England.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is believed to be a huge admirer of the talented teenager, who only made his senior debut for Marco van Basten's side three weeks ago.

Whilst the Eredivisie is not renowned as one of the most competitive domestic leagues in Europe, it has produced the likes of Luis Suarez and Jan Vertonghen, who are now well established players in England's top-flight.

'Bilal' - as he is referred to by Van Basten - has been a revelation for Heerenveen this season, and has attracted admiring glances from a number of different clubs.

Robin van Persie's presence at Old Trafford might help persuade the young Dutchman to pick Manchester United, should Moyes step up his interest in the attacker at the turn of the year.
