Manchester United and Manchester City are both interested in signing Feryenoord youngster Rodney Kongolo, reports AD

The 15-year-old, who has been labelled the next Patrick Viera, has attracted interest from all round Europe with the likes of Liverpool and Juventus also monitoring the starlet. 

Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Marseille are also reportedly in the race to sign the defensive midfielder and with Kongolo able to speak fluent French they will believe they can tempt the youngster to Ligue 1. 

The starlet can complete a move to one of Europe's elite clubs once he passes his 16th birthday and could be set for a Premier League switch.

United and City will both be looking at Kongolo for the long term as he could become a major star in years to come. 

Feryenoord will be desperate to keep the youngster at the club, but could find it difficult as the race for his signature heats up.
