Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker is said to have been closely watched by Jose Mourinho over the past couple of months, with United said to have made an enquiry for his services.
The 22-year-old Belguim international apparently impressed the former Chelsea manager when the Red Devils took on Anderlecht in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League last season, and according to the player's agent, Christophe Henrotay, Dendoncker is keen on a move.
"Anderlecht want to keep him but the kid wants a new challenge," Henrotay told Foot Mercato.
"We'll see if we can find an agreement with the club, but that seems difficult."
Mourinho has already brought in Nemanja Matic for his midfield ahead of next season, so it seems likely that the Portuguese tactician will go after the Belgian after the 2017/18 campaign.
The youngster made 57 appearances for Anderlecht last season, scoring six goals in all competitions.
