Man United keeping tabs on Chicago Fire midfielder Brian Gutierrez

Manchester United are interested in Chicago Fire midfielder Brian Gutierrez, reports the Daily Mail.

Some other Premier League clubs have also been taking note of the performances of the United States under-20 international.

Scottish Premiership club Rangers are also keen on Gutierrez.

The Red Devils continually eye upcoming talents across the world and are in search of the next Alejandro Garnacho.

Gutierrez has been a regular for Chicago this term, making 15 appearances in Major League Soccer.

The 19-year-old has weighed in with three assists in those games, and it is clear to see why he is attracting Man United and co.

However, obtaining a work permit for the American could be difficult.

As a result, Borussia Dortmund, Red Bull Leipzig and Girona are eyeing the wonderkid.

Interest is heating up in the Chicago midfield prospect, and more clubs are expected to join in scouting him.

Gutierrez can play on both wings, in central midfield and even as a defensive midfielder.

Man United manager Erik ten Hag could do with such a versatile player, but landing him may prove tricky.

Foreign players require a certain number of Governing Body Endorsement points to obtain a work permit to play in the Premier League due to post-Brexit rules.

Gutierrez has not played enough international games to acquire the needed points.

Chicago denied him the opportunity to represent his nation at the ongoing under-20 World Cup due to his importance to the side, further dealing a blow to his chances of meeting the required work-permit points in England.

Gutierrez was recently described as ‘incredible’ by Fire manager Frank Klopas, and Man United will likely continue keeping tabs on him.
