Manchester United are following Dinamo Zagreb youngster Milan Badelj.

The 20 year-old has been likened to Tottenham star Luka Modric and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been tipped off about his potential by the club's East European scouts.

Having already snapped up Serbian pair Zoran Tosic and Adem Ljajic, Ferguson is now weighing up a move for Croatian starlet Badelj, says Corriere dello Sport.
