Manchester United are believed to be interested in acquiring the services of Fulham youngster Matthew Briggs.

The 19-year-old defender only recently made his first start, against Chelsea, and put in a strong performance that earned him a pat on the back from some quarters.

And now The News of the World claims that United are looking to sign the teenager, having already brought in Chris Smalling from Craven Cottage for a fee believed to be in the region of £10 million.

However, it has been reported that Fulham are loath to let another bright young talent leave the club before his career has properly taken flight.
