Director admits Man United are scouting his team with £17m striker scoring 26 in 31

There are a number of markets you’d expect Manchester United to be looking at ahead of the summer transfer window. 

Even with the disappointments of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Shinji Kagawa, and Jadon Sancho, the Bundesliga still has a lot of quality. Potential center-half recruits from France, Italy, and Portugal are being considered by Erik ten Hag’s team. Additionally, the success of Andre Onana and Lisandro Martinez, if not Antony, could lead to more Eredivisie invasions.

Nevertheless, Manchester United hasn’t often dabbled in the Belgian market. Romelu Lukaku, Adnan Januzaj, and Marouane Fellaini are the only three Belgians to have ever played for the Red Devils.

The Premier League giants have also not signed a single player from the Jupiler League in the 21st century.

But could that be about to change?

Manchester United are scouting Cercle Brugge

According to technical director Rembert Vromant, Man United are one of a number of clubs who have sent scouts to watch Cercle Brugge in action, a team who have spent some time in the second tier of late now enjoying happier times and pursuing their best league finish since 2007.

“An average of 16 scouts come to watch every home match. I have seen the level of those scouts rise this season,” Vromant tells Het Laaste Nieuws, the interest in Cercle’s star players rising alongside their league position.

Cercle, the poor relations to Belgian giants Club Brugge, are currently fifth.
