Manchester United eye move for another Southampton starlet

Manchester United are eyeing the transfer of Southampton starlet Harrison Reed, according to The Daily Mirror.

The aforementioned reports suggest that the Premier League champions are tracking the talented youngster and have scouted him already this season.

19-year-old midfielder Reed, the latest talent from Southampton's prolific youth academy, has featured in both the FA Cup and Capital One Cup for the Saints so far this season and was also awarded his Premier League debut against Manchester City back in December.

Manchester United, whose season appears to have lurched from one wretched and troubling crisis to another since David Moyes replaced Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford dugout during the summer, have been linked with one or two of Southampton's top young players previously - most-notably talented left-back Luke Shaw.

Partly due to their woeful performance during the 2013/14 campaign to date and also presumably because of their impressive off-field commercial results, Manchester United are widely expected to invest heavily in upgrading their squad during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Midfield is certainly an are of concern for many Manchester United fans, with Moyes' first signing with the club - combative Belgian international Marouane Fellaini - having missed much of the season through injury and Michael Carrick largely failing to live up to his previously impeccable standards.

If Manchester United were to move for Reed, you would think it would very much be one for the future rather than a player capable of coming in and making a significant impact from the off.
