Manchester United are just one of a number of clubs chasing a Celtic starlet, while they have two top summer targets after dropping their interest in Jadon Sancho, all in the papers.



Celtic Under-17 goalkeeper Vincent Angelini looking for a way out, according to reports in Italy.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Angelini is pondering leaving the club and chasing a return to Italy.

Angelini’s father is Italian, but he is also the grandson of Celtic legend David Hay.

Manchester United, Everton and Southampton are all interested, but Serie A clubs Lazio, Atalanta and A.C. Milan could be too tempting to turn down for the player.

Angelini, 17,is out of contract in the summer.
