The 28-year-old played a starring role in front of his prospective new manager in last night's semi-final clash against Holland, advancing to Sunday's showpiece final after a penalty shoot-out victory.

Manchester United officials are now waiting for the go-ahead from Perez's current club Benfica, with talks planned upon the completion of the tournament in Brazil.

Perez is renowned for his brilliant range of passing and ability to control the game from midfield, and is exactly the sort of player the Red Devils crave in their bid to strengthen ranks ahead of the new season.

Chelsea have also been linked with a move for the South American schemer, who has turned down offers from Valencia and Lazio already this transfer window.

His arrival would represent Manchester United's third major signing of the summer, following the captures of Ander Herrera from Atheltic Bilbao and Luke Shaw from Southampton.
