MANCHESTER UNITED are keeping tabs on Leicester winger Harvey Barnes as a possible transfer alternative to Jadon Sancho.
The 22-year-old attacker has had an impressive season so far and made his debut for England in a 3-0 win over Wales in October.
The Red Devils scouting department have been impressed with the Foxes ace, and have been watching him closely.
SunSport understands Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also a fan of Barnes, and has been keeping a close watch on his progress.
And United could be tempted into making a move, with Borussia Dortmund still refusing to lower their £100m-plus asking price for Sancho.
Solskjaer made the ex-Manchester City winger his No1 target last summer, but the German giants stood strong and kept their man.
It is understood Leicester value Barnes at around £60m, but would refuse any approaches for one of their star men in January.
He played alongside Harry Maguire at the Foxes, and he is also a supporter of his Three Lions and former club team-mate's ability.

He has now made 65 league appearances for the Foxes and scored ten times, while making his way through the England youth teams.
