While United are likely to make a number of senior additions during the next transfer window, they have traditionally placed focus on bringing in prospects from around the globe.
According to Get Football News France, the Premier League giants wish to complete a deal for teenager Kambwala.
The report claims that United have told the French outfit that they are willing to pay £900,000 for the 15-year-old defender.
However, it is suggested that Sochaux have requested that United double their offer for the France Under-16 international.
Kambwala allegedly has little interest in forcing through a transfer against the will of his current club.
