The 16-year-old is gearing up for his first full A-League season at Perth Glory
Manchester United boss David Moyes will reportedly rekindle his interest in Socceroos teenage star Daniel De Silva.
Moyes had initially tried to bring De Silva to England when he was Everton manager only for the move to be scuppered by Britain’s work permit regulations, with the teenager subsequently signing a deal with Perth Glory.
The 16-year-old, who is of Indian-Portuguese parentage, was fast-tracked into the first team at NIB Stadium, making his first-team debut in March, and is now preparing for his first full season in the A-League after making big impression at the Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.
And despite being targeted by Premier League champions United this summer and harbouring ambitions of playing Europe later in his career, the attacking midfielder insists he is concentrating solely on the upcoming campaign with Glory.
“I have intentions to play in Europe but not for now. I want to focus on my career with Perth,” he told the New Straits Times. “My future is with my current club and I want to help them make an impression in the upcoming season.”
De Silva is slated to feature for Perth in their friendly with Malaysian Super League side Johor Darul Takzim on Wednesday.
