Manchester United are keeping a close eye on the French transfer market.

United's French scout David Friio admitted this week they have several targets under consideration.

"I scout the players in France on behalf of United," he explained to Il Essentiel . <> "16 to 19-year-olds but also in Ligue 1. And then I try to learn about the player's environment, family, agent etc to build a complete profile. Yes [there are other Frenchmen in my sights] but I will not mention names. In this environment, it is better to be discreet. We can find talent everywhere - Paris, Nancy and Luxembourg-ville."
