United To Collect Starlets

United To Collect Starlets

United are linked with several young talents yet again, with Carlos Tevez's brother and Southend's Medi Abalimba taking part in trials at Old Trafford.

Miguel Tevez, 17, was recommended to Fergie by Carlos Queiroz. He's the brother of our own Tevez and plays as an attacking midfielder and is on the books of Boca Juniors where his brother had started his career.

It is believed that Fergie was impressed with his qualities but with the guy being homesick during his stay, it is yet to be decided whether he'll be offered a deal at Old Trafford.

Another youngster, Southend's Medi Abalimba will be handed trials after the League One club revealed they had given permission for the 16-year-old to travel to Manchester. He joined Southend in the summer, turning down Premier League clubs and it was his performances in the youth team that caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ricky Dincan, head of the youth development at Southend, revealed that though they are reluctant to lose their most promising player, they don't want to stop him gaining valuable experience at Old Trafford.

And if rumours are to be believed, even more young players can join the club. It seems we are actively looking for young starlets, maybe that's the most important job of the scouts at the moment.

Nigerian wonderkid Philip Auta will probably join Ajax though the Sun claims United are interested in him. On the Stevan Jovetic front we have much better chances of success: the 17-year-old Partizan Beograd-striker is all set to end up at Old Trafford, according to several sources but Fergie still has to face some competition from Real Madrid who just can't bear to be left out from any possible transfer. Or it's Jovetic's agents talking up things as usual in modern football...
