Manchester United’s Belgian scout Roland Janssen has confirmed that the Red Devils are keeping a close eye on exciting Genk pair Leon Bailey and Wilfred Ndidi.
The young duo are two of the hottest prospects in European football and have impressed this season for the Belgian side both domestically and in the Europa League.

Bailey has gathered plaudits for his enterprising wing play and eye for goal, with the Jamaican starlet seemingly set to be in demand come January.
Ndidi has starred in the centre of Genk’s midfield and has been linked with a move to Leicester City in the European press, as the Foxes look to replace N’Golo Kante.
Janssen works for United as a scout and he has confessed that the Old Trafford outfit have deployed him to Belgium to watch the gifted pair play.
“For Leon Bailey and Wilfred Ndidi, yes,” Voetbal Nieuws quote him as saying.
“I came to scout them for Manchester United. The interest is concrete, I don’t know. Ndidi has the perfect profile for the Bundesliga or the Premier League.”
Jose Mourinho is expected to continue his overhaul of the United playing squad when the transfer window reopens next month, with the Portuguese trainer having the sizeable task of getting the Red Devils back in contention for major silverware.
