'Everyone wants to go to Manchester' - United target Promes speaks on rumours

FC Twente

Could Manchester United target Quincy Promes be on his bike to Manchester United?

Last night saw Dutch youngster Quincy Promes absolutely destroy the Scotland under-21 side. He scored a mesmerising first-half hat-trick in a 6-1 win which is bound to bring even more attention to his services.

The FC Twente winger, who has also been linked with Porto and Galatasaray, is in the 30-man provisional squad for the World Cup this summer - meaning he has obviously already caught the eye of Manchester United's next boss Louis van Gaal. So it is little wonder that the Red Devils are also keeping an eye on the player this summer, something LvG can obviously do from close quarters.

His performance was dazzling, his first two goals in particular were superb, and he certainly seems to have the type of quality that has recently been lacking from the likes of Ashley Young and Nani.

After the game the man of the match, who speaks very good English, spoke to Sky Sports when the subject of interest from United came up.

Promes went on to explain that no interest was official, but he could not hide his delight at such a prestigious club potentially chasing his signature:

"No but I have heard nothing yet. I don't think my agent heard nothing yet. But it's nice that such big clubs are calling your name. It's nice but nothing serious. Everyone wants to go to Manchester but not its not serious so ... but it's a nice club."

Promes would seemingly have a very good chance of heading to the World Cup this summer. His unpredictability and surprise factor might be the unknown quantity the future United boss could turn to as his secret weapon in Brazil.

Or perhaps he will keep that secret until the start of the Premier League season?
