Manchester United and Chelsea have reportedly entered the race to sign Croatian striker Dino Klapija.

Both United and Chelsea are showing interest in the 16-year-old wonderkid, who plays for Croatian side Kustosija, according to the Daily Mail.

The youngster was born in North Hempstead, USA, and started out his career at the New York City academy as a midfielder.

Klapija, who has been capped by USA at U16 level, chose to move back to Croatia with his family.

The reports claim that Barcelona, Juventus, AC Milan and RB Leipzig are also keeping an eye on the situation.

Kustosija could be willing to sell the highly rated teenager if they get an offer over £5million.
