Sir Alex Ferguson has been told that it will cost him £2million to buy Barnsley's whizz-kid striker Reuben Noble-Lazarus.

That is how much the Reds will demand in compensation from Manchester United if the Premier League champions decide to sign the teenager.

He became the youngest ever football league debutant when he appeared against Ipswich aged just 15 years and 45 days last September.

Coaching staff at Oakwell regard the Huddersfield schoolboy as one of the brightest prospects they have seen in 20 years.

Barnsley will not be bullied into selling Noble-Lazarus on the cheap, and source close to the club said, "The club has spent a lot of time and money on his development and are convinced they have a player capable of reaching the very top.

"They will want compensation that reflects the player's ability and potential."
