Football News

Manchester United are reported to have made an offer for Dundee United teenager Ryan Gauld, who has performed to distinction during his maiden campaign in professional football.

The 17-year-old has five goals in 15 SPL appearances this season, while he provided all four assists in the thrashing of Partick Thistle at Tannadice last weekend.

Gauld's performances have prompted teammates to dub him 'Mini Messi', while they had led to reported interest from both Manchester United and Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers, it is claimed, sent Anfield scouts to watch Gauld in action in the defeat of Partick, but the Sunday People reports that the Liverpool manager has been beaten to the first move by his Manchester United counterpart.

David Moyes is reported to have proposed an initial payment of £3 million for the player, along with the promise that Manchester United would face the Scottish outfit in three pre-season friendlies from next summer.

This bid, however, represents only half of the valuation Dundee United have placed on the Scotland under-21 international, and it now remains to be seen if the Red Devils will return with an improved offer.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are the latest club to be credited with interest in Gauld.
