Manchester United have reportedly taken goalkeeper Tomasz Kucz on trial from Polish club Polonia Warsaw.

According to the Mirror, the Old Trafford club are running the rule over him at their Carrington training base and the young goalkeeper is set to remain with the club for a week in the hope of impressing the United coaches and making the move permanent.

The 15-year-old stopper is highly rated in his homeland and has been the subject of interest from various clubs around Europe. The report claims that Kucz has already had trials with Premier League rivals Liverpool and Scottish club Rangers.

Louis van Gaal has clearly got one eye on the future of the club, as he continues to evaluate and recruit young players from all across Europe.

The Dutchman started with the signing of Timothy Fosu-Mensah from Ajax during the summer and continued his spree of recruiting top young players by signing Vanja Milinkovic from FK Vojvodina, Indy Boonen from Genk and Sadiq El Fitouri from Salford City.

The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager has a reputation of blooding young talent along with experienced players, and he has proved it at United as well, after handing a number of academy graduates their first-team debuts in his first season in charge of the Old Trafford club.

Meanwhile, midfielder Ander Herrera feels the Red Devils earned a deserved victory against Newcastle United on Wednesday, but feels that the team should score earlier in the game as the fans suffer a lot with them leaving it late in the game to get the winner.

United struggled to find the back of the net against the Magpies and were finally gifted a goal by goalkeeper Tim Krul in the 89th minute, which turned out be the winner, thus keeping them in the hunt for a place in next season's Champions League.

"I think we deserved to win. We deserved to score before and we were a little bit disappointed at half-time because we should have been winning," Herrera told United's official site.

"We created chances, we kept the ball, and we didn't give a lot of chances away - I think only one in the first half, in the last minute. But now we are very happy. When you win in the last minute you are very happy. But I think we have to improve, we have to score earlier, because our fans are suffering too much!" the Spanish midfielder added.
