Manchester United have seen off interest from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool to sign Slovakian midfielder Martin Svidersky on a three-year deal.

The 15-year-old, who had been at Slovakian outfit Presov, has had trials with United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Celtic, Manchester City, Inter Milan and Dortmund.

However, United saw off competition from up to six clubs to sign the midfielder on a deal until 2021 and he’s expected to link up with Kieran McKenna’s U18 squad for next season.

Svidersky can already speak English, German, French, Greek and Slovakian.
