DC United starlet Najar attracting interest from Real Madrid, Arsenal

DC United young gun Andy Najar is being monitored by European giants Real Madrid and Arsenal.

A report in La Tribuna which quotes Najar's father Wilson, suggests that the 17-year old winger may head over Europe to train with either the Spanish or English club.

"DC United is working hard on my son, now want to train in Spain with Real Madrid and representative as Arsenal but still nothing concrete for the future of my son," read a translation from the article.

Najar, the 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year, is eligible to play for the US despite being born in Honduras and is currently weighing up his international future.

"We are seeing the U.S. coaches, they have not called yet but I have targeted and are more interested really in Honduras, because they come to see play and your country, perhaps Honduras Federation has called but do not dare to come here to see how he plays," Najar Snr added.

"America has more advantage to play with them, because they see it all the time, plus you have studied and continue preparing more footballing, catracha (Honduran people) know that the fans will feel bad if you take this decision but not so is what he decides."
