Manchester United will have to contend with Italian Serie A giants AC Milan in their quest to sign Argentine wonderkid Alex Luna.
The Daily Mirror claimed that the Red Devils want to sign the 16-year-old ahead of other European heavyweights.
As many as nine clubs are interested in Alex Luna who scored 16 goals before the football season in Argentina was cancelled because of the dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic earlier this year.
Apart from Manchester United and AC Milan, English teams Arsenal and Manchester City have also looked at the possibility of signing the young attacker.

A lot of the big clubs in Argentina are also interested in him.
Alex Luna is expected to be promoted to the first team of his club Atletico Rafaela in the second division of Argentine football.
Manchester United want to sign him but he won’t join them at Old Trafford until 2022.
The news won’t really excite Manchester United fans who want the club to sign players for the here and now.
The Red Devils have been able to add just one major player to their squad in this summer’s transfer market.
