Man United plot move for starlet Real Madrid goal machine after missing out on Pedro

Manchester United are reported to be considering a move for young Real Madrid forward Borja Mayoral, according to the Daily Express.

The striker is apparently so highly regarded in the Spanish capital that he is already being referred to as the ‘next Raul’ and has caught Louis van Gaal’s attention following an impressive campaign with Madrid’s Castilla side last season.

The 18-year-old bagged himself an incredible seven goals in seven games for Zinedine Zidane’s side during the UEFA Youth League as well as finishing as top scorer in the European under 19 Championships for Spain in Greece earlier this summer.

Van Gaal has already seen a number of his top transfer targets fall by the wayside already during the current window, leaving him to consider making a bid for the teenager.

United could even ask for Mayoral to be included in any deal that would see David de Gea head to the Bernabeu.
