MANCHESTER, England - American teenager Freddy Adu began a two-week trial with English Premier League club Manchester United on Monday.
The 17-year-old Adu took part in training with players from the club's youth academy. Man United's senior squad left Monday for Glasgow, Scotland, for its Champions League match against Celtic on Tuesday.
Because Adu doesn't have a British work permit, he is not able to play in a competitive match.
Under FIFA transfer rules, Adu, who plays for MLS club D.C. United, is not allowed to transfer to a club outside the United States until he turns 18 on June 2, 2007.
Chelsea has also expressed interest in possibly signing Adu at some point.
