Man Utd ahead of Arsenal in race for Valencia whizkid Ferhat Cogalan

Manchester United are chasing Valencia whizkid Ferhat Cogalan.

The Sun says United and Arsenal are in a duel to land Turkish youngster Cogalan - tipped to become one of the world's best.

The 15-year-old is attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs following his dominating performances for Valencia's junior sides.

The exciting attacking midfielder is head and shoulders above his team-mates and his talent has not gone unnoticed.

He has yet to sign his first professional contract, and would be available for a nominal fee.

Rival bosses Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger are tempted to sign the youth international, who is rated the pick of Valencia's academy starlets.

But United have been on Cogalan's trail for over a year. Former Old Trafford star Phil Neville worked with the teenager during his coaching spell at Valencia - and recommended the playmaker to his old bosses.
