Manchester United have expressed interest in signing 18 year old Colombian forward Jhon Duran from MLS club Chicago Fire.

The 18 year old is valued at around £10million and is attracting interest from clubs around Europe after picking up eight goals and five assists in 27 games last season.

Premier League rivals Liverpool are also said to be interested in signing the Colombian forward.

According to reports in the Sun via Daily Mail, United have made contact with the MLS Club about Duran, weeks after Liverpool made similar enquiries.

The forward’s ‘agent and family recently travelled to England’ and Chicago Fire are believed to be keen on cashing in on the 18 year old after finishing 12th in the MLS Eastern Conference.
