Manchester United scouts have reportedly been impressed with Atletico Madrid defender Pablo Ibanez.
The Premiership giants are regularly represented at Atleti's matches with Fernando Torres understood to be their chief object of affection.
Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal have also despatched spies to Vicente Calderon to watch the Rojiblanco outfit in action.
Spanish sources are claiming Ibanez has caught the eye of all observers with his performances for the early leaders of La Liga.
The former Albacete man is expected to be monitored closely, with the prospect that Atletico could consider bids for the 23-year-old during the New Year transfer window.
It is believed that the stopper's style could be well suited to The Premiership.
