Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is on the lookout for a new striker this summer - and it looks like he’s found one.

At 15 years old, it’s unlikely he’d make any immediate impact on the Manchester United first team, but Swiss star Lorenzo Gonzalez has a host of top clubs watching him.

The Daily Mail reports that Manchester United had scouts at his games this week as the Switzerland under-15 international scored twice against Hungary.

Gonzalez plays for second division side Servette in Switzerland and Manchester United are not the only top club watching him - Real Madrid also had scouts in attendance.

As you can see from his YouTube highlights below, Gonzalez is a speed demon with the skills to match and a good eye for goal.

The report claims United and Real Madrid are likely to make offers to Servette later this summer, so the Swiss side will be fighting a tough battle to keep him at the club.

Manchester United have history when it comes to signing top young Swiss talent as they bought Saidy Janko from FC Zurich last summer after the Swiss under-19 starlet impressed scouts at an international tournament.

Janko spent time on loan at Bolton Wanderers last season and the 19-year-old is still waiting to make his first Premier League appearance for the Red Devils.

What do you think Manchester United fans - impressed by Gonzalez in the highlights above?
