Manchester United have expressed their interest in River Plate's teenage wonderkid Daniel Villalva.

The 17-year old Argentinean striker has made just a handful of first team appearance for Plate but United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be very interested in him.

Villalva has represented Argentina at U17 level and looks destined for big things but is remaining calm over his future and is keen to taste success with his current club.

"I am calm about my future and will not let things go to my head about a move to Europe," Villalva said.

"I'm happy to continue playing at River Plate and want to help them become champions."
