MANCHESTER UNITED are continuing to monitor Parma starlet Dejan Kulusevski as the teenager downed Napoli on the weekend.
Sent out on loan by Atalanta, Kulusevski has bagged a combined ten goals and assists for Parma this season as well as making his debut for the Swedish national team.

The winger’s latest exploits involved a goal and assist away to out-of-sorts Napoli on Saturday.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, United scouts were in attendance as Parma secured a surprise win at the Stadio San Paolo.
SunSport revealed last week that the Red Devils were keeping tabs on Kulusevski, who is also on Arsenal’s radar.
It is understood the player is rated at over £40million and is the subject of interest from across Europe and the Premier League.
These latest reports would confirm that interest but Italian media speculate that Inter Milan are determined to pull off a January move.
With Juventus also keen, Kulusevski insisted recently that he wants to see out the season with high-flying Parma.
He told reporters: “I’m playing well, so it’s normal to write about other clubs.
“But I don’t think about [a January move] because I have a year-long deal with Parma.”
The youngster took just four minutes to open the scoring on Gennaro Gattuso’s debut as Napoli boss, taking advantage of fellow United target Kalidou Koulibaly’s poor control to slot home.
