Cleverley's a wanted man

UNITED starlet Tom Cleverley is being targeted by a host of Premier League and Championship clubs. The 19-year-old midfielder, who scored in the 2-0 midweek friendly win against Valencia, enjoyed a successful four-month spell at Leicester last season and Sir Alex Ferguson plans to let him gain more experience this term before fully introducing him into his first-team squad. Leicester are keen to take Cleverley back but face competition from other top sides. "A lot of clubs have been in for him, one or two Premier division teams in fact," said the United manager. "He does need experience and I'm looking at, whether we loan him out." After scoring in front of 74,000 people at Old Trafford, Cleverley revealed the success of pal Danny Welbeck has been a source of inspiration. "It's every boy's dream," he said. "I couldn't ask for much better. When I found out I was in the squad I was delighted, and I wouldn't have thought I'd be standing there, after I'd scored. It's what you strive for, to score at the Stretford End. "I've seen my friend Danny Welbeck do it and I was jealous of him when he did it, now I've done it and I'm just so proud."
