Man Utd face Fiorentina competition for USA U17 starlet Gianluca Busio

Manchester United face Fiorentina competition for USA U17 starlet Gianluca Busio.

ESPN says United have expressed interest in the 17-year-old midfielder, who scored four goals and provided two assists in his breakthrough MLS campaign.

It's said United have been "kicking the tires" for the US Under-17 international, while European rivals Fiorentina have had several offers of around £3million rejected.

SKC's director of scouting Edward Burleson said: “He's a great talent. He is a player who can play safely in Europe. If he wants to make a great career, he has to go to Europe soon. Inter? Yes, I also know about Manchester United."
