Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson cast an eye over Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil in Werder Bremen's 5-1 friendly defeat against Fulham on Saturday.
Ferguson has claimed he is happy to give his youngsters a chance this season but the Scot, in London for Sunday's Community Shield clash with Chelsea, still turned up at Craven Cottage to look at potential transfer targets.
The Scot has been linked with Ozil since his impressive displays for Germany at the World Cup, but he didn't have much opportunity to see the 21-year-old at his best as Fulham cruised home thanks to Zoltan Gera's hat-trick.
