Manchester United are reportedly monitoring the progress of two quality youngsters.

According to Dutch media outfit De Telegraaf, Manchester United are one of the three teams scouting PSV winger Steven Bergwijn. Manchester United scouts watched the 20-year-old during PSV’s Champions League defeat to Inter.

Premier League rivals Liverpool and Italian side Inter are the other clubs reportedly scouting the 20-year-old winger.

Bergwijn has scored 4 goals in 8 Eredivisie appearances for PSV this season.

The exciting young winger just won his first cap with Holland and is rated the jewel of his country’s new generation of footballers.

PSV rejected offers from Torino and Bordeaux last summer for the winger and PSV boss Mark van Bommel recently hailed the 20-year-old as a top player.

Van Bommel said: “Steven has very sensible people around him. His parents are a real example as good parents, in the way they deal with him. We talked well together during the summer. I think it’s really great.

“Perhaps already he’s a top European player. Yes, already.”

Manchester United are also considering a move for Sunderland youngster Adam Richardson, according to a report on The Sun.

The 15-year-old goalkeeper has made an impressive start to his youth career at the Stadium of Light and United scouts believe he has the potential to be a world class goalkeeper in future.

The report on The Sun claim Manchester United are looking to pay £500,000 for the 15-year-old goalkeeper. While £500,000 might not be big money for a club like Manchester United, spending that much for a 15-year-old shows how highly United rate the youngster.
