Manchester United are offering trials to American whizkid Nick Taitague.

The Daily Mail says United's global scouting network continues to grow, with USA Under 15 international Nick Taitague another young talent to have been invited for a trial at the club's Carrington training complex.

Taitague, a 14-year-old from Midlothian in Virginia, has been identified as one of America's most gifted young footballers, and the winger was one of three underage players included in the USA squad for the Copa Mexico de Naciones earlier this year.

United scouts were present at the competition in Mexico in August and were suitably impressed by the FC Richmond player.
