Published Add your comment

Manchester United have offered trials to two Indian teenagers scouted at a soccer school in Calcutta.

According to the Daily Mail, the two footballers, Arko Dey and Rajeeb Roy, both 16, were scouted at a United soccer school in the Indian city.

And they have both been invited over to Manchester to play in front of United coaches in the hope of impressing.

United have a global scouting network and have scoured the world for the best young players in the past. They signed Gerard Pique as a teenager from Barcelona, while Adnan Januzaj joined from Anderlecht in 2011.

And the report notes they've already agreed a deal for 16-year-old FC Zurich youngster Dimitri Mfomo as well.

The teenager will join at the end of the season, the second capture from the Swiss club under David Moyes's reign after the deadline day signing of Saidy Janko last summer.

The Switzerland under-19 international arrived under the radar from FC Zurich after he impressed United coaches when playing against the Red Devils at the FIFA Blue Stars Tournament last year.

He can play right-back or on the wing and has featured for United's under-21 team this season.
