Manchester United are reportedly preparing a bid for young Anderlecht left-back Sergio Gomez. The 21-year-old Spaniard has been in fine form for the Belgian side this season, scoring five goals and contributing 11 assists in 32 appearances.
Anderlecht-Online (via ManchesterEveningNews) has reported that United have sent scouts to Belgium to watch the young left-back, who have been impressed with his performances.
The Red Devils face competition from Serie A giants Inter Milan in the race for Gomez, though.
This is not the only intriguing stumbling block, though. They will also have to do business with Anderlecht manager and former Manchester City centre-back Vincent Kompany.
Nevertheless, interest in Gomez is merited, considering not only his performances for club but also with the Spain Under-21 team.
During the European Championships U-21 qualifying campaign, he has scored six goals and provided five assists.
However, Leeds United are also in the fray for the player.
