Manchester United are keeping a watchful eye over the progress of Barnet's 17-year-old Matt Stevens, according to ESPN

The youngster has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, including Manchester City, after his goalscoring exploits for Barnet's under-18 side.

The former Reading player scored more than 50 goals for the League Two club's youth side last season and became their youngest ever player when coming off the bench at the age of 16.

Swansea and Crystal Palace have already been turned away, however last years Conference champions are bracing themselves for bids from both Manchester clubs, who are looking to improve their academies. 


Manchester United could be about to offer Thomas Muller a bumper £135,000-a-week contract, according to reports.

The Independent, citing Kicker, claims Louis van Gaal has a great interest in the striker, who he previously managed at Bayern Munich.

Muller's signature will not come easy with the German giants reluctant to see the 25-year-old leave.

United are short in the forward department following the departures of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao so could be forced to spend big bucks on Muller.


Guillem Balague has taken to Twitter this morning to disappoint all Manchester United fans. 

Reports emerged from Spain yesterday claiming the Citizens had gazumped their city rivals with an offer of €30million plus a further €2m in performance related bonuses.

However, Balague believes Ed Woodward is close to an agreement with Nou Camp officials and United remains the likeliest destination for Pedro.
