According to The Yorkshire Evening Post, White is being targeted by Leeds over a possible loan deal, having also been on the radar of United boss Marcelo Bielsa a year ago.
And the centre-back is now following the Whites on Instagram, as well as the Elland Road pair, Tyler Denton and Kalvin Phillips.
The only other clubs followed by White are those he has already played for, and while Denton was a teammate of his at Peterborough United last season, there is no obvious connection with Phillips.
White is the second rumoured Leeds target to start following the club's Instagram account, after the Wolverhampton Wanderers winger, Helder Costa.
The 21-year-old is now one of six senior centre-backs at Brighton, after the Seagulls' capture of the Leeds-linked Matt Clarke from Portsmouth.
Is the Brighton defender off to Leeds this summer?
