Man Utd determined to beat Real Madrid for Scottish superkid Ryan Gauld

Manchester United are preparing a bid for Dundee United youngster Ryan Gauld.

The 17-year-old attacking midfield star – dubbed the ‘mini Messi’ in Scotland – is one of the hottest teenagers in Europe and has even been watched by Real Madrid, says the People.

But Aberdeen-born Gauld is on United’s radar – and United boss David Moyes sent trusted aide Jimmy Lumsden to watch the youngster making his debut for Scotland’s Under-21s against Georgia last week.

Scotland drew 1-1 and Gauld, also watched by scouts from Newcastle, Liverpool and Everton, played the entire game.
