Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Benfica's talented young goalkeeper Joao Virginia, according to The Independent.
Citing reports from Portugal, the article claims that Old Trafford officials have moved quickly to agree a deal and the 15-year-old will arrive in Manchester soon to put the final touches on a deal.
The deal will bring an end to a 12-month project that started after United invited Virginia to a trial at their Carrington training base last summer.

United coaches were impressed with his ability, but allowed him to return to Benfica where he enjoyed plenty of football as the youth team's first choice goalkeeper.
Having seen him develop further, United have now moved to bring him to Manchester on a permanent basis and it seems it has not taken too long to agree a deal.

We know that this isn't the biggest news
This is obviously not the biggest transfer news Manchester United fans will read this summer, but could stand as a significant move should Virginia become a first team star in the future.
Anyway, if David de Gea leaves for Real Madrid, the young Portuguese could find himself with an opportunity to impress sooner rather than later.
Manchester United look set to allow both Ben Amos and Anders Lindegaard to leave Old Trafford this summer, leaving just Victor Valdes if De Gea forces his way out.
De Gea's situation
The Spanish goalkeeper has been incredible for the Red Devils this season and has attracted the interest of Real Madrid. Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid seem to have attracted the interest of De Gea as well.
De Gea has just 12 months left on his current contract and is yet to put his signature next to a new one. That is despite the fact that United have offered him a staggering wage of £200,000-a-week.
This is not about money, however, but about the chance to return to the city where he grew up. It is also reported that his girlfriend is unwilling to relocate permanently to Manchester.
Should he refuse to sign a new contract, Louis van Gaal will have to decide whether or not to cash in this summer, or risk losing him for nothing in 2016.
Should Manchester United cash in on David de Gea if he refuses to sign a new deal?
