Manchester United have reportedly invited highly-rated Vancouver Whitecaps starlet Alphonso Davies for a trial with the club.

Davies is said to be interesting a number of Europe’s top clubs but Adam Cook of CTV Edmonton claims that the Whitecaps are yet to give their approval to the move.

The 17-year-old is widely regarded as one of Canada’s top young talents and made his MLS debut at the tender age of just 15.

United are said to have been tracking Davies, who has also been capped at senior level by Canada, since last year and are keen to bring him to England to take a closer look at his talents.

Davies’ road to the MLS has been a difficult one, as explained by The Sun’s Duncan Wright:  “He was born in a refugee camp in Ghana after his parents fled the civil war in Liberia.”
