Manchester United manager Ole Solskjaer is credited with an interest in Brescia youngster Sandro Tonali, according to the Sun.
Tonali, 19, is currently one of the best teenagers in the world following his consistent performances in Serie A and lots of clubs are keeping close tabs on him.
The British media outlet reported that Paris St German, Chelsea, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid had already shown interest in the midfielder but Manchester City are leading the race for his signature.
The same report further said that United scouts watched Tonali’s display against Genoa last weekend and the youngster did not disappoint as he found the back of the net despite his team’s 3-1 defeat.

Manchester City manager Guardiola is equally impressed with the report he’s getting from his scout over Tonali’s display since the start of the season and he’s set to rival Solskjaer and other suitors for his services.
It is believed that the two Premier League giants will have to release nothing below £40m if they must lure him to their respective clubs in January or next summer transfer window.
Tonali has scored six goals in 61 matches despite playing as a deep-lying midfielder, and he is reportedly seen as the perfect player to replace unsettled Paul Pogba.
