Manchester United are interested in signing young Middlesbrough attacking midfielder Stephen Walker in the near future, according to Team Talk.
Walker has emerged as one of the hottest young prospects in the Middlesbrough academy and the youngster looks set to achieve great things in the future.
Many in Middlesbrough have put a lot faith in Walker due to the player’s wonderful ability on the ball and his potential has impressed a lot of people.
In addition to his fine talent, the hard working attitude of Walker was evident in the Middlesbrough Under-18’s recent loss to Manchester United last month, the 17-year-old was the standout performer in an otherwise disappointing Boro performance.
This display seems to have impressed the opponents of the day and now according to reports, Manchester United are reportedly looking to lure the talented youngster to Old Trafford in the near future.
Despite the interest from United though, Middlesbrough will be hopeful of keeping hold of their starlet as Walker is believed to be close to breaking into the first team at the Riverside Stadium.
