Sarpsborg midfielder Krepin Diatta has admitted it would be a “dream come true” to join Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho has sent representatives to watch the Senegal U20 international over the past year and is believed to have stepped up scouting in the past few weeks.
His agent Youssoupha Fall confirmed during the summer that the Red Devils have spoken to him twice about a possible move.
“I’ve spoken to Manchester United’s scouts twice,” said Fall.
“First under the U20 World Cup, and again after the (league) game against Brann.
United had scouts present Sarpsborg’s meeting with Odd at the weekend, after which Diatta confirmed his interest in a move to Old Trafford, insisting he is good enough to make the switch.
“I didn’t know they scouted me today, but to join them would be a dream come true,” the 18-year-old told TV2.
“I think I’m good enough, but I play for Sarpsborg and love this club. We’ll see what happens in the future.”
