Manchester United are prepared to make a formal approach for River Plate midfielder Enzo Fernandez after a positive report from their scouting team.

The Argentine has made an impressive start to the current season, bagging four goals and three assists from 11 appearances in all competitions.

His progress has caught the radar of several elite European clubs, and the Red Devils appear to be leading the race to land his services.

According to Ole, there has been a positive feedback from the scouting team, who watched Fernandez in action against Fortaleza last week.

The 21-year-old scored with an effort from outside the box in the 2-0 win. He certainly left a big impression on the talent-spotters at United.

Fernandez has a release clause worth €20m on his contract. This will increase to €25m during the final 10 days of the Argentine transfer window.

United are likely to make a formal bid in the coming weeks. They may attempt to sign him for a lesser fee, but that seems unlikely to happen.
