Argentine left-back Enzo Diaz has revealed Manchester United scouts were impressed with his display and has admitted it would be a dream to play for the 20-time English champions.
Diaz, 21, is currently playing for his native club Club Agropecuario Argentino based in Carlos Casares, a city of Buenos Aires province. The club, founded in 2011, were promoted to the Primera B Nacional, which is the second division of the Argentine football league system, for the first time in their history.
United's two scouts watched Diaz in action in Club Agropecuario Argentino's latest 2-0 victory over Aldosivi at their home ground, Estadio Ofelia Rosenzuaig. The Argentine defender plays on the left side of the back four and the Red Devils' representatives were happy with his performance.
The player confirmed that United scouts have informed him that they will watch him for the next several games. Diaz also stressed that he has not had a chance to speak to the scouts from the English club.
"I found out about it on Saturday morning, but later I did not talk to anyone other than my agent. My agent told me that they were delighted and they were going to see me a couple more games," Diaz told Ataque Futbolero.
"It is the dream of any footballer [to play for Manchester United]. However, I need to remain focused on what we are doing and enjoying this moment."
Diaz has been a part of the squad that helped Club Agropecuario Argentino seal a promotion last season. This term, his side are top of the league with 15 points after six games.
Should Diaz manage to seal a move to Old Trafford, he will join his compatriots Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero at United. In addition to this, he will follow the footsteps of Juan Sebastian Veron, Gabriel Heinze, Carlos Tevez and Angel Di Maria as other Argentine players to have played for the Red Devils.
