Man Utd scout Alvial to watch Vancouver Whitecaps superkid Alphonso Davies

Manchester United are watching Vancouver Whitecaps whizkid Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian club have been trying to keep the 15 year-old away from publicity but he had already shone six times as a sub before starting the 3-3 draw against Colorado Rockies on September 24.

The Sun says Canadian sources claim United's America scout Jorge Alvial will check him out at home to Seattle Sounders this Sunday.

Liberia-born Davies could well start this game too as the Whitecaps seem certain to miss out on the play-offs, so can look more freely to the future.

Vancouver would surely demand a huge fee for a remarkable player equally blessed with pace and technique.

Davies has already played several Canadian Championship and CONCACAF Champions League games, as well as featuring for Whitecaps' under-16s and under-18s.
