Manchester United are watching Bari teenager Francesco Grandolfo.

Grandolfo struck a hat-trick on his Serie A debut last weekend in the 4-0 win over Bologna.

United are aware of the 18 year-old and keeping tabs on his progress.

Agent Giuseppe Bozzo revealed his price-tag has sky-rocketed with reported interest from AC Milan and United.

"A few weeks ago he only cost €200,000, but many of the Serie A directors ignored him and preferred to seek talent in Brazil," said Bozzo.
