DC United striker Luciano Acosta: Man Utd were here to scout me

DC United striker Luciano Acosta has welcomed claims he's being scouted by Manchester United.

Local outlet The Athletic reports United were watching Wayne Rooney's strike partner in DC's 4-0 defeat to LA FC.

The 24-year-old has one goal in five MLS games this season after scoring ten last season.

Asked about the rumours, Acosta stated: "I'm obviously happy [United] were here.

“They came to see me, and obviously I just went out and tried my best.

“Today wasn't my day, we were up against a great opponent and in reality I'm just sad for the group's performance today, and mine too."
