Manchester United have won the race for a teenage Irishman rated the 'new George Best'.

The People says Rob Brady, 15, was being chased by the majority of the Premier League and his dad was even schmoozed at the Champions League final by Liver pool and FA Cup final by Chelsea last season.

But Brady will join Sir Alex Ferguson's academy kids when he turns 16 in January, in what is said to be a lucrative deal.
