Man United keeping close tabs on 22-year-old La Liga midfield star

Real Sociedad right-back Alvaro Odriozola is reportedly being eyed up by Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old, who was linked with Real Madrid are Barcelona last year, is said to have been watched up close by Red Devils scouts of late.

According to the Daily Mail, United have taken notice of the senior Spain international and have already made initial enquiries regarding his availability.

Sociedad value the player at around the £18m mark, though further interest from one of Spain’s big-two clubs could drive up the asking price.

The report indicates that United may also target a left-back ahead of next season, while at least one new central midfielder is on their radar.
