The agent of Metz youngster Vincent Thill has claimed that Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are both interested in signing his client.
Thill, 16, made his first-team debut for Metz in last month's Ligue 1 clash with Bordeaux and has already been capped at senior level by Luxembourg.
According to the midfielder's agent Didier Philippe, Bayern tried to sign Thill in the summer transfer window, while Real Madrid are closely "keeping tabs" on the four-time Luxembourg international.
"Bayern thought he was available for an interesting transfer fee, but that was not what Metz had in mind. The transfer did not happen for financial reasons," Philippe told Footmercato. "But I also think it was important for Vincent to sign his first professional deal with Metz.
"I can confirm that Real Madrid are keeping tabs on him, but I do not know if [Zinedine] Zidane personally called him. But Madrid and Bayern are not the only teams that have shown an interest in him. There are other big teams as well. You do not see a 16-year-old play in Ligue 1 every day.
"He is an extraordinary talent, with a magical left foot. He can do incredible things. He obviously has to develop physically, but he is an amazing player when it comes to his vision and the way he sees things."
Thill represented CS Fola and Niederkorn in Luxembourg before joining Metz in 2012. body check tags ::
