Anderlecht Under-16s captain Eliot Matazo is on the radar of Manchester United and a clutch of other European clubs, according to a report.

Anderlecht youngster Eliot Matazo is reportedly on the radar of a number of European clubs, including Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Belgian schoolboy, who does not turn 16 until February, is currently captain of one of the Purple and Whites' age-grade sides.

Despite his tender age, Dutch outlet Voetbalkrant suggests that United have already made contact with the defensive midfielder's agent, who they were put in touch with by Romelu Lukaku's family.

Matazo, offered academy forms by Anderlecht which he cannot sign until next year, is also said to have attracted the interest of RB Leipzig, Schalke 04 and French champions Monaco.

Should Matazo move on, the Belgian club will be due compensation from United which may be settled by a tribunal.
