Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be keeping tabs on the latest comparison to Lionel Messi in young winger Juan Manuel Iturbe.
Only recently just signed for Porto, Ferguson is believed to be lining up a first option agreement on the player once he becomes more developed.
Ferguson has had much success signing players from Portugal. Ronaldo, Nani, and Anderson all came for big transfer fees after showing their quality and it is believed Iturbe will be no different. The talented youngster can play on either wing and Ferguson is believed to be a big fan of the 17 year old.
While one for the future Iturbe has already excited Argentinean fans with his promise. At just 17 he was sent to the World Cup squad to gain experience from older players. While we may not see him in a United shirt for some time, he is certainly one to look out for, lets just hope he doesn’t follow in the footsteps of failed Maradona’s.
