It’s been a whirlwind year for the midfielder, breaking into United’s first team, impressing and ultimately securing a place in Belgium’s World Cup squad all in 12 months.
But with such progression comes suitors. Before signing a 5 year deal with United back in October, both Juventus and PSG tried to snap him up with PSG making a big money last ditch attempt to secure his services.
But with a long term deal in place, clubs are now forced to pay big money for his signature and Real Madrid are said to be the first team to test this out according Madrid based paper Marca.
The story has been picked up by the Daily Mirror whilst the Daily Mail claim that United have told Real Madrid to back off as the 19 year old isn’t for sale.
Could be a long summer for United if Real employ their usually tactics!
