Man United & Leander Dendoncker
On Friday in Belgium, the 2017-18 Jupiler League season kicks off with a match between Antwerp and Anderlecht.
According to a couple of reliable source from Belgium, Man United are sending a scout to the game for a specific mission.
The Red Devils are looking a 22-year-old Leander Dendoncker, who memorably scored a header against United in last season’s Europa League.
What do we know?
Kristof Terreur, who works for Belgian paper Het Laatste Nieuws, told his followers on Twitter that Man United were sending a scout to the game.
While he failed to name United’s target, he posted a picture of Dendoncker’s header v the Red Devils with his update.

Local news outlet De Morgan, however, have been far more detailed in their understanding of United’s interest in Dendoncker.
The report that the 22-year-old is also being tracked by AC Milan and RB Leipzig, Anderlecht are determined to hold onto the midfielder, while RSCA have placed a 38 million euro price tag on the player’s head to deter suitors.
