Manchester United could rival Barcelona for the signature of Rapid Vienna youngster Yusuf Demir, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing to battle Barcelona for the signature of Rapid Vienna youngster Yusuf Demir.

The forward only turned 17 in June but has made 23 first-team appearances for his Austrian club, scoring four times and contributing three assists in the process.

Demir's agent was recently pictured in Barcelona, fuelling suggestions that the Catalan giants are firmly in the race for the Austria Under-21 international.

According to Kronen Zeitung, there is serious interest from Ronald Koeman's side, but United are also in the hunt for his signature.

Demir, who has also been linked with Ajax, has a contract in Vienna until the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

The attacker has contributed one goal and two assists in 10 Austrian Bundesliga appearances this term, while he also scored against Dundalk in the group stages of the Europa League last month.
