Man Utd threaten Arsenal plans for Real Madrid teen Cesar Gelabert

Manchester United have joined the race for Real Madrid teen Cesar Gelabert.

The Daily Star says United have joined Premier League rivals Arsenal in the race to seal the capture of highly-rated Gelabert.

Gelabert is a 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who has risen through the youth ranks at the Bernabeu after joining from Hercules Alican in 2015.

Arsenal were initially reported by Los Blancos fan websites to hold an interest in Gelabert, but now they face competition from United, as well as Borussia Dortmund and Lyon.

Real stand to lose the youngster when his deal runs out next summer, with reports suggesting talks over an extension are yet to get off the ground.

Gelabert currently plays for Real Madrid Castilla, the club's reserve team, who compete in Segunda Division B Group 1.
