Manchester United have sent scouts to Belgium to ‘especially’ watch 17-year-old Aster Vranckx, according to reports.

United, along with AC Milan and other big European names have been keeping close tabs on the midfielder, reports Het Laatste Nieuws.



Vranckx has made four appearances for KV Mechelen this season, who sit fourth in the Belgian Pro League.

With Man Utd now seemingly looking to the future with a youthful transfer policy, it is no surprise they are looking at the likes of Vranckx to add to their ranks.

But, the Red Devils may be frustrated – at least initially – if they do opt to make a move for the young star.

The same report claims Vranckx is hoping to continue his development in Belgium for now and that any transfer speculation is being brushed off by the club, who are not listening to offers.
