Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is keeping a close eye on Manchester United whizkid Marcus Rashford.
Rashford has impressed for Jose Mourinho’s United this season, along with England.
Ronaldo has noticed and Don Balon says he has approved a move for Rashford if Real president Florentino Perez is unable to secure the signing of top target Harry Kane.
The La Liga champions know it will be difficult to get a deal over the line for the Tottenham striker.
The signing of Rashford could mean Karim Benzema would stay at the Bernabeu with the 19-year-old being slowly introduced into the fold by Zinedine Zidane.
Manchester United are chasing a deal for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil AND teammate Alexis Sanchez.
The Independent says United are interested in snapping up the attacking pair this summer.
The star Arsenal duo will be free agents at the end of the season if they fail to renew their contracts in north London.
United are planning to try and sign German playmaker Ozil, with Jose Mourinho a huge fan of his following theirs together at Real Madrid.
It is said the Red Devils also maintain an interest in Chilean forward Sanchez but believe they are behind Manchester City in the race to snap him up.
Neymar was named alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on the three-man shortlist for the Best FIFA Men’s Player Award, which was announced in London on Friday.
Brazil superstar Neymar, 25, won the Copa del Rey with Barcelona last season before joining Paris Saint-Germain in a blockbuster €222 million move that smashed the world transfer record.
Ronaldo, 32, is the overwhelming favourite to win the award, having led Real Madrid to the La Liga title and a third Champions League success in four years last season.
He won last year’s award after winning the Champions League with Madrid and the European Championship with Portugal.
Ronaldo previously won the FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2008 and is a four-time winner of the Ballon d’Or.
Messi, 30, scored 54 goals last season as Barcelona won the Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup.
The Argentina great, a record five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or, has made a superb start to the current campaign, scoring 12 goals in his first eight appearances in all competitions.
Ronaldo won the inaugural Best FIFA Men’s Player Award last year after a six-year merger between the FIFA honour and the Ballon d’Or.
The winner of the 2017 award will be announced during a ceremony at the London Palladium on October 23.
The voting for the award, equally weighted between national team captains, national team coaches, media and fans, closed earlier this month.
