Manchester United are interested in Frickson Erazo and have been watching the young defender closely.

Frickson Erazo is 24 and plays for Barcelona SC is his native Ecuador and has been watched in recent months by United scouts, who are interested in signing the star in the summer.

Erazo is flattered by the attention of Manchester United, but is trying to concentrate on playing well at the moment.

“It’s true that there was initial contact, but it will not help if my performance drops

I try not to think about this. It’s really flattering that big European clubs are watching football in my country, but if you think about playing with Real Madrid or Manchester United you risk losing concentration” He told The Daily Mail.

Erazo is not the only player that Ferguson is targeting this summer as he also made enquires about signing South Korean striker Heung-min Son.

Heung-min Son currently plays for Hamburg and has signed a 1-year extension to his contract which runs out next year. He has scored 9 goals this season and is nicknamed the super talent.

As well as Man United and Inter Milan chasing the star they also face competition from Liverpool and Tottenham.
