Manchester United line up move for Croatian young star Marko Pjaca

Manchester United are reported to be monitoring Dinamo Zagreb youngster Marko Pjaca with the view to making a possible move, according to the Daily Express.

The Express states that the 20-year-old has already collected six caps for the Croatian national side and comes highly-rated in his homeland, with Italian publication Corriere dello Sport labelling him as the “purest talent in Croatia”.

And according to the Italian report, United are thought to be amongst the clubs keen on snapping the £8.5million-rated winger.

Serie A giants Inter Milan are also thought to be watching him closely after former star and current assistant boss Dejan Stankovic watched the youngster in Zagreb’s recent Champions League clash with Olympiacos (via Express).

The Express also highlights comments manager Louis van Gaal made last weekend about his side needing a bigger injection of speed and creativity in wider positions.

“I have said already in my first year many times we need speed and creativity on the wings,” he said.

“You have seen that now we play with Jesse Lingard and he is not the most speedy winger in the world and Mata is also not the most speedy winger in the world.

“So first we must first finish that problem and then we can see how we have to play and how we are in balance with playing with speedy wingers.”

Pjaca predominantly features on the left wing, but can also play up front when required.
