Lusale is the latest highly-rated prospect to impress United after the teen played in Slovakia's three group games at the U17 European Championship in May.

The youngster was also in Palace's FA Youth Cup squad last season.

He joined the Eagles when he was 13 and then was picked up by Jay-Z's agency who also represent the likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Kevin De Bruyne and Lucas Paqueta.

Roc Nation's website has described Lusale as: "A quick, dynamic winger who is regarded as one of the most exciting attacking players in the UK at under-16 level.

"Comfortable playing off the right or left wing, his electrifying pace and direct running with the ball makes him a constant threat to the opposition defence.

"He is often the source of goals and assists for his team."

Manchester Evening News reported the transfer story.

The Red Devils are also in line to sign Scotland youngster 15-year-old Camron Mpofu from Reading.

While former Cardiff and West Brom striker Rob Earnshaw's 14-year-old son Silva Mexes has already joined United's academy from Ipswich.

And Australia's teen sensation James Overy, 16, has already arrived at the club.

English clubs face restrictions to recruiting players under the age of 18 from overseas due to Brexit regulations.

In the final window in 2020, United were able to sign Alejandro Garnacho, Willy Kambwala, Alvaro Fernandez and Marc Jurado.
