United plot £2m Costa Rican swoop

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are considering a move for FC Copenhagen left-back Bryan Oviedo, according to the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old Costa Rican international has been identified by the reigning Premier League champions as a player to provide competition for stand-in captain Patrice Evra, with Brazilian defender Fabio expected to leave the club on loan next season.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has made clear his intentions to send the South American youngster out to gain more first-team experience, having not developed as quickly as his twin brother Rafael, who is currently United's first-choice right-back on the opposite flank.

Benfica is Fabio's proposed destination, with the Portuguese side also reportedly interested in signing Anderson - who is likely to fall further down the pecking order - as United look to strengthen their midfield department with the addition of two new signings.

Oviedo will be out of contract with the Danish champions next summer, and could be available for around £2million.

Manchester United scouts were in attendance to see Copenhagen and Oviedo in action at the weekend, with a view to giving the green light over a prospective move to Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens in June.
