Man Utd scouts watch PSV defender Santiago Arias
Manchester United scouts have been watching PSV right-back Santiago Arias, according to reports.
We reported in March that United were being linked with the Colombia international – and it seems they are now stepping up that interest.
The Red Devils have had the 22-year-old watched on several occasions in recent weeks, claims Dutch website Voetbal International.
They report that Arias’ agents are aware of United’s interest but are not willing to comment because they have not been contacted by the Premier League side.
Arias joined PSV from Sporting Lisbon for £556,000 in 2013.
He has recently been ordered by FIFA to pay his first club La Equidad £123,000 for breaking his contract with them to join Sporting in 2011.
The player argued that he was an amateur and free to move, but a FIFA arbitration panel ruled that he had broken his contract with the Colombian minnows.
