Old Trafford boss keen on collection of talent.
Most wanted! Five targets for Man United boss Ferguson
The breathtaking manner in which Athletic Bilbao dismantled Manchester United last month made Europe take notice.
Sir Alex Ferguson was quick to acknowledge them as an emerging force and earmarked their players as future stars of Old Trafford.
On Thursday night he sent brother and European scout Martin Ferguson to Lisbon to take a closer look at six of their side as they took on Sporting.

Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson may well be closing in on yet another Premier League title but the Scot is also seemingly very keen on further strengthening his squad and has been greatly impressed by a number of Athletic Bilbao players. Here are the five San Mames men that the Old Trafford boss is scouting.
The Basque 23 year old has been likened to Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets and the tough tackling midfielder is a player that Sir Alex Ferguson apparently greatly admires. The 6ft 2in Bilbao man is still yet to win his first senior Spanish cap but is apparently on the fringes of Vicente del Bosque’s squad after a solid campaign.
