Manchester United are eyeing FC Rapid Vienna midfielder Yusuf Demir to sign a deal in January.

Real Madrid


Yusuf Demir

has caught the attention of

Manchester United

. Between the two parties, the Red Devils look more interested in signing with the 17-year-old and have yet to put in an offer as they are having a talk with his representatives.

The Austrian international has featured in 14 games in the Austrian Bundesliga and Europe League this season. His price tag is €10m and Barcelona are another club interested in acquiring Demir’s services.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

has always been keen on bringing young players and training them for first-team and Demir fits the category, which saw United sign Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri.

Notwithstanding the roumers surrounding Donny van de Beek when he joined the club, he is pushing to get into the first-team as a regular starter.

Should United allow Paul Pogba to depart in the summer, they should look for a bigger name replacement which puts their interest in Demir under questions.
