MANCHESTER UNITED are targeting a January transfer for Tyler Adams, according to reports.
Adams, 23, enjoyed an impressive World Cup for the US national team in Qatar as he captained them into the knockout rounds.
And now Man Utd are considering a move for the defensive midfielder to bolster the team's spine.
However, they have next to no chance of signing him, according to TEAMTALK.
They report that while the interest from the Red Devils is genuine, both Leeds and Adams remain committed to each other.
Adams signed for Leeds last summer in a £17million move from RB Leipzig, with the potential to rise to £20m.
