Manchester United are reportedly monitoring the progress of French teenager Dolan Bahamboula with the intention of making a move at the end of the season.
According to Insidefutbol.com, United sent scouts to watch the highly-rated 16-year-old in action for club Nancy and they have reported back with glowing reports.
Bahamboula is not yet considered a part of the senior squad at Nancy, but the Ligue 1 club are desperate to hold on to him long enough so he can contribute to the first-team.
However, that may be easier said than done with United reportedly eager to sign him at the end of the season.
Bahamboula's progress is now being recognised on the international stage, featuring for France in the Under-17 European Championship qualifiers against the Faroe Islands and Ireland.
