Manchester United are keeping tabs on highly-rated St Johnstone striker Stevie May, according to Scotland's Evening Telegraph.

The 20-year-old has started the 2013/14 campaign in scintillating form, scoring seven goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.

May's fine goalscoring run has captured the attention of a number of admirers, including new Red Devils boss David Moyes, who succeeded Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford during the summer.

"Manchester United look at promising players all over the world and May has come to their attention," a source told the Tele.

"There is little chance of a bid being forthcoming in the immediate future but Man U will keep an eye on May."

The Scotland U21 international also attracted interest from League One side Peterborough United during the summer, who are managed by the former Manchester United manager's son Darren Ferguson.

However, Posh were unable to negotiate a fee with St Johnstone for the prolific frontman, which could pave way for a future switch to the reigning Premier League champions.

"With manager Davie Moyes being well aware of the Scottish scene, he will have his scouts well briefed to keep him informed of what is going on in Scotland — and that includes keeping up to date on May's form," added the source.

Moyes has made just one high-profile signing since taking over at Manchester United, revisiting his old club Everton to steal the services of Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
