Europe's biggest clubs are following Independiente's 17 year-old striker Patricio 'Pato' Rodriguez.

Pato struck for Independiente in yesterday's friendly against Boca Juniors and is being followed by Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and Arsenal.

However, Manchester United could have the inside-running after Pato revealed: "I try to play like Cristiano Ronaldo, taking the ball and running at the defence. He's the one I most admire."
