United 'working on deal' for Brazilian whizkid - reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are working on a deal to bring Brazilain starlet Adryan to the club, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims scouts from the club were dispatched to Mexico to watch the player score five goals in six games during the FIFA U17 World Cup, and have returned to Old Trafford suitably impressed.

An attacking midfielder who can also play as a striker, the 16-year-old has been on the Manchester United radar in the past, with Sir Alex Ferguson pushing to get the Flamengo starlet to the club.

Manchester United had previously attempted to bring Adryan to the club on a trial basis on a number of occasions, but were originally unable to persuade the player to travel to England for the opportunity back in January.

The Metro reported in April that Manchester United were again trying to get the player to the country to train with the club after impressive performances at the South American Under-17 Championship, but the Red Devils were again rebuffed amidst interest from Real Madrid.


Fresh paper reports claim Manchester United are now willing to make a deal with Flamengo for the player, who would follow in the footsteps of Rafael Leao, who signed at Old Trafford back in March after a similar pursuit by the Red Devils.
