Manchester United are one of the clubs who have been urged to bid for River Plate starlet Lucas Ocampos, according to reports.

The Argentine U17 sensation has been linked with a string of top clubs across Europe, with Chelsea and Real Madrid both thought to be keen on the winger.

However, The Metro reports that Manchester United are one of the clubs who have been 'told to bid' for the talented teenager.

Dubbed 'the new Cristiano Ronaldo', River were originally unwilling to listent to offers for Ocampos, and have reportedly rejected a bid from Inter Milan in the past.

But financial issues at the Primera B Nacional side appear to have led to Ocampos' new-found availability, alerting Sir Alex Ferguson and others over a possible move for the player.

Ronaldo's success at Old Trafford is unlikely to be repeated, but landing a player regarded as the next big thing in the position would be a major coup for Manchester United were they successful in their efforts.

The Red Devils would have to pay in the region of £14 million to bring the player to England, and the No.11 could emerge as a potential successor to Ryan Giggs at Manchester United given his age and potential.
