Manchester United are reportedly chasing for exciting prospects from Atletico Madrid.


The Old Trafford club have been criticised this year for the poor performances of youth players who have been promoted to the first team and Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly looking to snatch a clutch of Spanish starlets.


The Red Devils main target, according to The Sun, is 17-year-old full-back Javi Manquilla and they have been monitoring him in youth tournaments.


The Mirror are claiming that other Atletico youth squad players are also being monitored by United.


18-year-old goalkeeper David Gil is reportedly one of the players interesting Old Trafford scouts, as well as Dani Marquez, Oliver and Spain Under-16 international Ivan Calero.


United have also been struggling to keep hold of two of their most promising young stars, Ravel Morrison and Paul Pogba.


Both players’ contracts are due to run out at the end of the season and United officials have so far been unable to convince them to sign extensions.


Teams from around Europe are reportedly interested in signing the pair but the Manchester club still hold out hope of tieing them down to new deals.
