Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna is reportedly hoping that his relationship with Manchester United will help to smooth over a deal for a highly thought of full-back.

According to Football Insider, the recently appointed Town boss – and former United coach – has set his sights on bringing in Alvaro Fernandez on loan.

The 18-year-old is regarded as a bright prospect at Old Trafford, having arrived at United from Spanish giants Real Madrid in the summer of 2020.

The left-back has been a regular for the Red Devils' Under-23s side this term in Premier League 2, as well as turning out for Under-19s in the UEFA Youth League.

The report adds that Fernandez took part in several first-team training sessions at United under McKenna's watch.

The Spain youth international also played in the senior side's behind-closed-doors friendly against Stoke City just before the current campaign got under way.
