Manchester United have been dealt an injury blow in their pursuit of Spanish starlet Álvaro Vadillo.

The 17-year-old winger has been earning rave reviews in La Liga, impressing for Real Betis during a fine start to the season for Pepe Mel's side.

Tracked by Manchester United during his youth career, the Red Devils will reportedly maintain an interest in the player during his rehabilitation from a knee ligament injury suffered against Real Madrid over the weekend.

Ironically, Los Blancos are also said to be interested in the teenager, with The Daily Mail reporting that Jose Mourinho will also be monitoring the situation with a view to a possible summer bid for the player.

It's thought that Vadillo will face close to six months on the sidelines, hampering the player's chances of showcasing his talent to interested suitors like Manchester United.


Sir Alex Ferguson invested heavily in young players this summer, with David de Gea and Phil Jones highlighting the Scot's desire to help build a team for the future at Old Trafford before his retirement.

Vadillo would fit the bill as a talented youngster with a promising future in the game, and Manchester United will be hoping to beat their rivals to the Benito Villamarín starlet ahead of their rivals.
