Man Utd ponder bid for former indoor soccer star Leo Baptistao
It is understood that Vallecano striker Leo Baptistao was among those being watched. The 20-year-old has scored six times in 17 La Liga appearances since stepping into the main striking role vacated by Michu.
Baptistao's rise to prominence has been slow as a result of two serious arm injuries, as well as a bout of hepatitis, according to reports in Spain.
He first came to Europe after impressing scouts with his close control during indoor matches, where he played alongside the much-coveted Neymar.
