Manchester United have joined the race for Argentine wonderkid Alex Luna and are ready to battle AC Milan for his signature – even though he may not arrive until 2022.

Luna, who is only 16 years old, plays for Atletico Rafaela and scored 16 goals in 2020 before coronavirus ended the season in Argentina.

He may be young, but his dribbling and direct attacking skills have made him one of the most wanted players in the world with Rafaela saying they have already turned down seven requests to take him on loan.

Some of the biggest clubs in South America have followed his progress , especially as the youngster is due to be promoted to the Atletico Rafaela’s first team in Argentina’s Second Division next season.
