Man United and Liverpool battle over Great Dane

Arch rivals Manchester United and Liverpool are set to battle over Danish teenage sensation Emre Mor, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The 18-year old is one of Europe’s hottest properties after excelling in FC Nordsjaelland’s Under-19 side, earning rave reviews from top scouts across the continent.

Both North West giants are thought be joined by the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Ajax in having cast an eye over his situation in Scandinavia.

Dortmund particularly are known to be hot on his heels, having admired him for a while. With their former boss now in charge at Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp could see fit to try and tempt him to England.

The Denmark Under-19 international has emerged as one of the biggest talents on the continent, having impressed scouts sent from Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have found goals hard to come by, and turned to a relatively unknown teenager in the last transfer window in order to add some firepower to their ranks when they signed 19-year old Anthony Martial for £36.6m.

Captain Wayne Rooney has struggled to find the back of the net, despite equalling Denis Law’s goal tally in the recent win over CSKA Moscow, and has moved within range of Sir Bobby Charlton’s 250 record amount of strikes.

The winner against Moscow was his 237th for the club since arriving as a teenager in 2004.
