Zakaria-Bakkali-PSV1Manchester United have moved into pole position in the race to sign Belgian starlet Zakaria Bakkali.

Bakkali broke into PSV’s first team last season prompting plenty of interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

A summer move to La Liga champions Atletico Madrid collapsed and the 18-year-old winger recently decided to reject a contract extension with the Dutch club.

PSV boss Phillip Cocu has demoted Bakkali, who has been dubbed ‘the new Eden Hazard’, to the B team this season and he looks set to leave next summer when his current deal expires.

According to the Daily Mail, United have revived their interest in the starlet and the Red Devils could finalise a pre-contract agreement in January to nab him for free next summer.
