VIDEO: Great skills; great goals - Reported United target Juan Familia Castillo

Ajax

Said to be attracting interest from Manchester United, here is a video of Juan Familia Castillo in action.

A report in the Daily Mail this weekend claimed Manchester United were keeping a watchful eye on Ajax youngster Juan Familia-Castillo.

The 14-year-old has been making waves in the Dutch club's academy for some time and given Louis van Gaal's knowledge of football in his homeland, it is no surprise the United boss is looking there for potential new talent.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has already signed from Ajax and now it is being suggested that United have watched Familia-Castillo's last two matches for Holland's under-15 side with a future move being touted.

YouTube has a habit of making the most ordinary of players look sensational - just ask any United fan who watched show-reels of Gabriel Obertan when the French winger first signed for the club.  But in the case of Familia-Castillo the hype may well be justified.

Some of the passes, tricks and finishes on show from the teenager are simply breathtaking for one so young and that is no surprise given Ajax's reputation for schooling some of the best talent in the game.

For now the rumour of a possible move to United is nothing more than that, but a quick look at the video above could have their fans hoping this is one story that has legs.
