Man United joined by Tottenham in hunt for Romanian prodigy Dennis Man

Man United joined by Tottenham in hunt for Romanian prodigy Dennis Man

Man, 20, has hit seven goals in 22 appearances this season for club side FCSB, formerly known as Steaua Bucharest.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino sent a scout to check on the attacking midfielder – who has usually been deployed on the right wing this season – on Sunday in his side's clash with Viitorul Constanta.

But the fixture was called off at short notice due to dense fog before being rearranged for tonight.

Man signed for Romania's biggest club from UTA Arad in 2016 for around £360,000 and has put in plenty of strong performances this term.

But FCSB look set to make a hefty profit if they cash in on the rising star, who is under contract until 2022.

As well as Tottenham and Manchester United, Roma and Fenerbahce are also thought to be keen.

The Turkish side had their offer of around £2.5million categorically denied by owner Gigi Becali.

Instead, the controversial politician demanded ten times as much for his star asset.

But it is understood the Romanian club would accept a fee lower than that.

Kane and Eriksen to return but Walker-Peters in for crucial Barcelona game

TOTTENHAM know a win in the Nou Camp tomorrow night will guarantee them a place in the Champions League knockout rounds.

Fail to beat Barcelona and they are relying on Inter Milan slipping up at home to PSV Eindhoven.

But just when Mauricio Pochettino needed a full-strength side, he looks as though he has a defensive crisis on his hands.

First-choice right-back Kieran Trippier has struggled with a groin strain in recent weeks and was not in the matchday squad against Leicester on Saturday.

He is not even expected to travel with the squad to Barcelona.

Serge Aurier started at the weekend – and three Champions League games this season – but limped off with 12 minutes to go and is now a major doubt as well.

It means Kyle Walker-Peters is expected to celebrate his fresh new deal at Tottenham by starting against Lionel Messi and Co.



Italian paper Tuttosport named Man on its 100-strong list of contenders for its Golden Boy award for Europe's best young player.

He made his senior national debut in a 1-0 win over Sweden in March still aged just 19.

Tottenham's links with Romania date back to 1994, when they signed World Cup duo Ilie Dumitestcu and Gica Popescu while Vlad Chiriches had a two-year spell at White Hart Lane between 2013 and 2015.
