Manchester United 3

The Old Trafford outfit are being linked with a move for the 16-year-old, who has been likened to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester United have reportedly entered the race to sign highly-rated AC Milan youngster Hachim Mastour, Italian media source Tuttomercatoweb claim.

The 16-year-old has been compared in some quarters with Cristiano Ronaldo for his ability to run with the ball and skill, and has already been inducted into the Rossoneri’s first-team squad.

Mastour was an unused substitute for Milan’s Serie A clashes with Lazio, Sassuolo and Atalanta, but is yet to make his senior debut for the San Siro outfit.

The report suggests that Real Madrid are keen on signing the teenager to add to their growing list of young superstars in the Spanish capital, but United are also ready to make a move for Mastour also.

Mastour is of Moroccan-Italian descent and has represented Italy under-16’s. A video of his outstanding skills can be seen below.

The teenager moved from Reggiana to Milan as a 14-year-old and looks set to be a real star in the game if he can continue his progress.

However, Milan seemingly have a fight on their hands to keep hold of Mastour, with United and Madrid ready to swoop for the talented youngster.
