Manchester United are hot on the trail of Romania teen sensation Dorin Rotariu as David Moyes bids to strengthen a squad languishing in eighth position in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have endured a difficult start to life with Moyes at the helm but the former Everton boss is already planning for the future at Old Trafford and the Dinamo Bucharest forward is at the top of his transfer wish list.
The 18-year-old has been labelled the new Robin van Persie in his native Romania and is also nicknamed RVP by his team-mates because of the ferocious quality of his left foot strikes.
And with the Dutchman’s own future at Old Trafford reportedly in doubt and Wayne Rooney stalling over a new contract at United, Moyes could be planning for life after his star forwards.
Rotariu certainly knows his way to goal, scoring six times – five in Romanian Liga 1 in just seven starts – in his first season with Dinamo.
