MANCHESTER UNITED have joined Man City and Spurs in the hunt for teenage sensation Elif Elmas from Fenerbahce, it has been claimed.
The 19-year-old already has ten caps for Macedonia and would tick boxes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is looking to build a team of young talent.
Elmas wears the number 99 shirt for Fenerbahce and scored a brace as his country beat Latvia 3-1 in a Euro 2020 qualifying game in March.
The youngster is considered by many to be one of the brightest prospects in European football and would attract a meaty price tag.
With 39 appearances for the Turkish club last season, the central midfielder could replace Paul Pogba if the Frenchman departs for Real Madrid.
But Elmas scored just three times in those games which may worry Solskjaer who would want a better return from a man in the middle.

Born in North Macedonia to a family of Turkish decent, Elmas came through the ranks with Macedonian side Rabotnicki.
He joined Fenerbahce in July 2017 in a deal worth around £160k.
The Turkish giants have former Spurs striker Roberto Soldado on their books but are having a disappointing campaign – currently sitting in tenth.
