The 16-year-old has caught the eye of some of Europe's top clubs with his impressive performances for Partizan Bardejov in the second tier of Slovakian football.

He also scored a hat-trick in his country's 4-3 demolition of Northern Ireland at under-17 level, with the Manchester Evening News suggesting United have made a move to take him on trial.

And Murcko has posted on his Instagram page to show off that he is at Carrington, posing with the EFL Cup that United claimed in a 3-2 win over Southampton at Wembley on Sunday.

The Red Devils have apparently appointed a new Polish scout to step up their search for Eastern European talent, with a possible deal for Murcko paving the new for more arrivals.
