Manchester United are reported to be monitoring Espanyol and Spain Under-21 left-back Aaron Martin as they look for what seems to be a replacement for Luke Shaw.
United scouts watched Martin play for his current club Espanyol in the Friday night La Liga match against Levante and are report to have asked to be kept in the loop of any developments regarding his future.
The 20-year-old signed a new long-term contract with Espanyol in January, keeping him at the club until 2022.
Manchester City are also believed to have sent scouts to watch Martin with £52 million summer signing Benjamin Mendy being out for the season.
Espanyol will not want to let their star player go cheap and will look to get his full €40 million buyout clause before letting him leave.
It looks like Shaw’s days after fans took to social media to criticise his attitude in a recent Under-23’s match.
