Nicolas Castillo: Hit four goals at U20 World Cup

Castillo was a team-mate of United's Angelo Henriquez at the recent U20 World Cup in Turkey and finished as one of the tournament's top scorers with four goals.

Having taken Henriquez from Universidad de Chile to Old Trafford last summer, reports suggest United are plotting a similar raid on their Santiago rivals Universidad Catolica for £4million-rated Castillo.

Catolica's sporting director Jose MarĂ­a Buljubasich admits the 20-year-old, who has won one senior cap, is keen to make a switch to Europe but says no firm bids have yet been made for his services.

"We can't deny that Nicolas wants to be sold, as any talented young player would," said Buljubasich to Bio Bio. "However, there is no formal offer yet.

"There is interest, but I reaffirm that there is nothing concrete. We understand what he needs, but there is a structure at the club."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
