The youngster leaves Tomsk defenders trailing in his wake as he sets up the stunning goal

Pinyaev had his photo taken with his hero, Paul Pogba, and posted that on his Instagram account.

But it is not thought that the Red Devils can sign the youngster yet.

Russian laws will not allow him to leave the country until he is 18.

Pinyaev plays for Russian second-tier side Chertanovo Moscow.

His amazing assist came in the 95th minute of their match with Tomsk.

Despite his age, he came on as substitute on 58 minutes.

And right at the death he set up A. Konev for Chertanovo’s second goal in a 2-0 victory.

He sensationally beat two defenders on the left side of the box before crossing for Konev to tap home.

It was Pinyaev’s second senior appearance for the Russian side.

Having seen footage of the youngster’s special talent, United coaches are thinking: “This kid is going to be something special.”

But the red tape is sure to prevent a permanent transfer for a few years.

There are no such problems with kids from other parts of the world, including Africa, Europe and South America.

But Chelsea have landed in hot water with Fifa for signing youngsters.

However, United chiefs desperately want the youngster and are doing their best to woo him.

He was able to meet up with the first-team players when he came over to England on trial.

Pinyaev also got his own kit.

United will work hard to get through the red tape and sign the youngster before he is snapped up elsewhere.
