Man Utd face transfer war with Atletico Madrid for Watford youngster Pervis Estupinan after scouting him on Osasuna loan – The Sun

WATFORD youngster Pervis Estupinan has caught the eye of Manchester United and Atletico Madrid, according to reports in his native Ecuador.

Osasuna signed the 22-year-old on a two-season loan last summer and he quickly made the left-back spot his own as the LaLiga side steered clear of relegation trouble.

Such consistent form has earned the attention of United, Atletico and several Italian clubs, report Expreso.

The admirers are said to have scouted Estupinan, whose future is entirely in the hands of Watford despite his spell in Spain.

In 11th place at the break, newly promoted Osasuna have eased into mid-table with their loanee playing every minute of their league campaign bar a single match he was suspended for.

Estupinan impressed Watford when breaking out at Ecuadorian side LDU Quito and has also been sent to Granada, Almeria and Mallorca for first-team experience.

Therefore, despite signing in 2016, he is yet to play a game for the Hornets at any level.

Manchester United are currently well-stocked for left-backs with Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams leading Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans after Ashley Young left in January.
