Manchester United are in pole position to sign Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Mateo Kovacic, according to

The 17-year-old is attracting interest from throughout Europe, with Arsenal, Juventus and Bayern Munich reportedly all tracking his progress.

However, United, having registered their interest, are the preferred destination for the teen sensation.


“United have made it clear they are looking at Kovacic in a big way and they think he is a future star,” a source told

“His age and price tag means January will probably be too soon but the feedback is that the player's preference would be a move to Old Trafford and United are favourites to sign him.”

The player's agent has recently stated the player is likely to move to England in the near future, but reports suggest a move is likely to occur next summer rather than during the January transfer window.
