Man Utd revive interest for Sochaux whizkid Yven Moyo

Sochaux youngster Yven Moyo is back in the sights of Manchester United.

Sochaux youngster Yven Moyo is back in the sights of Manchester United.

The News of the World says the midfield prospect crossed the Red Devils' radar last year and French sources claim Sir Alex Ferguson has ordered fresh checks on the eve of the new season.

Although Moyo has yet to make his Ligue 1 debut, the 18-year-old has a reputation as an up-and-coming talent.

His father intimated last year that he wanted Moyo to stay with Sochaux and learn his trade before opting for a move abroad.

"A scout from Manchester United called me to say that the club was interested in Yven," said Jean-Eudes Moyo at the time. "They've monitored him since last year.

"At his age, I prefer that he stays here and matures before going elsewhere."
