Manchester United close in on £6m-rated teenage striker Robert Muric

Manchester United are in talks over a deal for Dinamo Zagreb’s Robert Muric.

Manager David Moyes may be able to secure the 17-year-old striker for just £300,000 in compensation despite the player being valued at £6million.

There is a dispute over whether Muric has signed professional forms. Chelsea and Barcelona have also watched the Croatia Under 17 World Cup star.

Muric's father, Branko, has reportedly admitted his son could be on the move this month after growing frustrated with the attitude of Dinamo management.

Branko was asked about staying in Croatia and Robert moving to Hajduk Split.

'Hajduk? No, thanks,' was his reported reply.

Moyes has a number of January targets, including Everton's highly-rated England midfielder Ross Barkley.
