USA starlet Freddy Adu will train with Manchester United for two weeks in November.
The 17-year-old America international has been widely predicted to move to one of Europe's leading clubs.
Adu's club season with Major League Soccer side DC United ended last weekend and the teenage forward is keen to further his footballing education in Europe.
"I still don't know the details, but if it happens, it will be exciting," Adu told the Washington Post.
"I'd like to be back, but my ultimate goal was to go overseas, and if it comes sooner rather than later, I'll take it."
