Europe is glistening with young stars at the moment. Manchester City’s Leroy Sane is one of those having set the Etihad Stadium alight during the second half of the season.

Amongst those reportedly interested in the teenage sensation are Manchester United, who will be looking to strengthen during the summer after what has been an hit-and-miss season under manager Jose Mourinho.
United signed former Monaco wonderkid Anthony Martial for an astronomical fee only two summers ago, and while he had an excellent first season in English football, he has since struggled to make a real impact.
