Manchester United scouts were in Spain on Wednesday night to see Arnaut Danjuma give Villarreal a shock Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

Danjuma pounced in the first half at El Madrigal as the LaLiga side took a deserved 1-0 first-leg lead over the six-time European champions ahead of next week’s return in Munich.

It was the Dutchman’s sixth goal in the Champions League this season – level with Liverpool’s Mo Salah – and 14th overall for Villarreal.

United are one of a number of European clubs tracking Danjuma’s progress after he moved to Spain from Bournemouth for £21.3million last summer. The 25-year-old winger signed a contract until 2026 and is known to have a £64m buyout clause.

Liverpool have also been linked with Danjuma whose pace and ability to attack off the left flank has earned comparisons with Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
