Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho personally watched Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Mijat Gacinovic in Serbia’s 3-2 loss to Austria last week, according to reports in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils boss is keeping tabs on the 22-year-old Serbia international with view to a potential transfer.

The same article states that Mourino’s presence initially caused confusion with a number of media outlet listing different names that could have been of interest to Mourinho.

However, the Daily Mirror is claiming that the Red Devils boss is interested in Bundesliga’s rising star Gacinovic following his impressive performances for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Gacinovic has scored four goals in 50 appearances for the Bundesliga side following his debut for Eintracht Frankfurt in 2015.

The midfielder has already scored two goals in his three games for the Serbia national team so far in an impressive start to his international career.

Of course, Mourinho will be able to call upon Nemanja Matic to give his Manchester United boss some insight into the talented Serbian midfielder.

Matic moved to the Red Devils in a £40m deal from defending Premier League champions Chelsea in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United will make the trip to Liverpool in their next Premier League game at Anfield on Saturday evening.
