Man Utd continue to monitor the progress of Bastia's Alexandre Song Billong.According to reports emanating from the French press, Manchester United continue to monitor the progress of Bastia's Alexandre Song Billong.
The 17-year-old defender-cum-midfielder has impressed during his first season in top flight football and has already been earmarked as a face to watch.
Earlier in the season United were linked with an approach for Song, who is the nephew of former Liverpool and West Ham stopper Rigobert Song.
However, the Cameroon international inked a new deal at Bastia in the new year - which keeps him at the Corsican outfit until 2008.
It has been intimated that United have already enquired about a possible price but thus far, Bastia have declined to comment on any interest from the Premiership giants.
Song has already earned international recognition and it is thought Sir Alex Ferguson and his network of scouts will continue to observe the fledgling star between now and the end of the campaign.
