Queens Park Rangers are preparing a bid to sign Manchester United midfielder Sean Goss, according to Press Association Sport.
Goss, 21, moved to Old Trafford from Exeter back in 2012, and has shown his potential for Nicky Butt’s reserves this term.
His recent consistent performances have eventually attracted admiring glances, and Queens Park Rangers are believed to be interested in bringing in the talented midfielder, preferably on a permanent deal if not on loan.
The boyhood United fan, who was born in Germany, hasn’t been able to make a competitive first-team appearance for the Red Devils, despite being on the bench for the Premier League fixture at Watford in November 2015.

Goss is a regular starter in Manchester United’s reserves, and his fine free-kick set up Matty Willock’s late winner in Monday’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool.
QPR currently sit 17th in the Championship, with Ian Holloway’s boys on a three-match winning run in the league after ending a run of six straight defeats.
With a good range of passing, positional awareness and confidence in possession the main features of Sean Goss’ game, comparisons have been made between Goss and United’s current midfield maestro Michael Carrick. The England international is certainly the ideal role model for Goss to share a training field.
The major problem for him has been injuries, and thus, consistency. He needs to be playing week in and week out at his age and stage of development. It is, however, quite difficult to find a suitable club that wants an injury prone and at times inconsistent player on loan to fill a gap in the squad.
