Barcelona who are Spanish giants are reportedly interested in the signing of Manchester United youngster Arnau Puigmal Martínez during the coming January 2021 transfer window.

Puigmal is currently playing for Manchester United Under 23 side, but Barcelona have seen him as a great talent who will be a nice addition into their squad.

Arnau Puigmal actually joined Manchester United three years ago and the 19-year-old is said to be expecting a chance in Ole Solskjaer's first team at Old Trafford.

According to the report on UK Sun, Barcelona are ready to approach Manchester United's chiefs in January 2020 with the hope of luring the player to the Camp Nou.

The report added that the Catalans would first throw him into their second team and his performances there will determine his fate.

Barcelona must, however, be aware that they are not the only one interested in Puigmal as Paris-Saint-Germain are also reported to be monitoring his situation at Old Trafford.

Puigmal is seen as one of the best players in the Red Devils' U23 set-up and can also play left-back or in midfield which is an incredible one.

The full-back is the side's top-scorer so far this season with four goals.

Mason Greenwood and Scot McTominay are the other youngsters who graduated from Manchester United second team.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently occupying 14th position on the Premier League standings with 10 points after seven games played so far.
