Man United close to bidding for wonder-kid nicknamed the 'mini Messi'

He's been called the mini Messi, but Ryan Gauld isn't from Argentina - he's from the exotic climes of Aberdeen



Gaulden boy: The 'mini Messi' is tipped for big things
Mark Runnacles
Manchester United have increased speculation that they are on the verge of a bid for Dundee United wonder-kid Ryan Gauld, writes Steve Bates of the Sunday People.

The 17-year-old attacking midfield star – dubbed the ‘mini Messi’ in Scotland – is one of the hottest teenagers in Europe and has even been watched by Real Madrid.

But Aberdeen-born Gauld is on United’s radar – and United boss David Moyes sent trusted aide Jimmy Lumsden to watch the youngster making his debut for Scotland’s Under-21s against Georgia last week.

Scotland drew 1-1 and Gauld, also watched by scouts from Newcastle, Liverpool and Everton, played the entire game.

The Tannadice club know they have a diamond on their hands and will cash in if their valuation of around £5million is met.

How good is this kid? I thought I knew most of the up and coming British lads though obviously I'm more focused on the England.

He has been very good so far this season. Looks to be a the real deal from what I have seen. Given better training, with better players, I think he could become a class act. Would not cost a lot and well worth a punt if you ask me.
