Valverde, 22, has been tipped for the top for years but is slowly proving his quality in LaLiga — and long-term admirers United are on red alert.
And with Paul Pogba openly admitting he likes the idea of a move to Real Madrid in the future, United are keeping an eye on Valverde in case a swap becomes possible.
Valverde has a £640MILLION buyout clause, which shows how much Real think of him.
It would be unusual for United to sign a player from a major European rival at his age but Pogba could be a very intriguing pawn in the game.MAN UTD NEWS LIVE: Click here for the latest United news
Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had confirmed the club triggered the one-year extension in Pogba’s contract.
His deal was up at the end of this season with no announcement that the club had taken up the opportunity to extend it by a further year.
Solskjaer said: “Paul's our player, he's going to be here for another two years and sure he’s focused on doing his best for us and we want to see the best from Paul and I'm sure in the next couple of years we'll get the best out of him.”

Family of 3-year-old with cancer gets special gift from neighbors
HUMBLE, Texas -- When times get tough, residents in one Humble neighborhood unite as one.
This time, it was to honor 3-year-old Ezra, whose young life took a big turn last month.
"He was laying down on this couch and we noticed some bleeding out of his right ear," explained his mother, Vanessa Madrid, during an interview with Eyewitness News. "We went to the urgent care ... immediately, within the hour of noticing, they told me it was a possible ruptured ear drum."

Friends and family gathered from near and far to celebrate the life of Anthony Murillo. Even though Tony was diagnosed with leukemia last year, he still pushed through and received his diploma.
Ezra was ultimately diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.
"We felt alone," said his mom. "We were surrounded by a lot of family, but whenever you get news like that, as a parent, you can't help but fall deep into a very dark place."
Madrid's neighbors decided to plan a car parade to lift the family's spirits.
"Everybody was supportive," said a neighbor. "We were so elated."
The parade included fire trucks, police units and even motorcycles.
"All those fun things that Ezra plays with, toy size, were right there," said Madrid. "Ezra's eyes were, 'Wow!'"
The family was left in shock and said they're grateful to be surrounded by neighbors who are willing to go the extra mile for a family in need.
"I can't believe how many people out there care, genuinely care, about my son and what he's going through and about us," said Madrid. "I want to thank them. I want to thank our community ... We truly appreciate what they do to our son."
