Manchester United & Chelsea scout £2m David Luiz lookalike

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United and Chelsea scouts have run the rule over Anderlecht starlet Wout Faes, who bears a striking resemblance to Brazil international David Luiz.

The wild-haired teenager, who turns 16 later this week, played for Belgium U17s at the recent European U17 Championships in Scotland - and is believed to have impressed the watching Premier League scouts at the tournament.

Faes's eye-catching performances have, according to the Daily Mail, prompted clubs to discuss figures over a potential move for the youngster. The likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, however, will need to pay Anderlecht £2m in compensation to secure the defender's services.

Little is currently known about Faes, including whether he would be open to a Premier League move this summer. However, judging by his David Luiz-esque haircut, the Belgian might prefer a move to Stamford Bridge over Old Ttrafford.

Manchester United are in the market for a new centre-back following Nemanja Vidic's decision to leave the club for Inter Milan at the end of the season. The Red Devils, though, have been linked with older defenders, such as Benfica's Ezequiel Garay, over recent months.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have already secured the services of highly-rated French centre-back Kurt Zouma. But, with Luiz strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, could Jose Mourinho replace the Brazilian with an upcoming Luis lookalike?
