Manchester United target Roberto Firmino shows incredible skill in new video

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United have been heavily linked with Brazilian ace Roberto Firmino for some time now and it's easy to see why. 

The Brazilian ace is one of the most highly rated young forwards in Europe and earned a call-up for his country's Copa America campaign in Chile, where he was a last substitute in their opening 2-1 against Peru on Sunday evening.

The 23-year-old managed seven goals in the Bundesliga last season, and according to recent reports Manchester United are taking a look at him ahead of a potential £13.1 million move to Old Trafford.

If the powers that be at Manchester United had any concerns over his relatively paltry goal return in the Bundesliga then they need only need to watch the video he uploaded this week to be sure of his remarkable talent.

The young forward has been captured pulling what is seemingly the impossible; looping a volley into a nearby basketball net from miles away without looking. Yep, you read that right.

After a few kick-ups Firmino arched a pinpoint shot into the net without even bothering to turn his head - now that's talent. Check out the video below: 

The Brazilian is just one many strikers currently being linked with a move to Old Trafford. Radamel Falcao has been sent back to Monaco at the end of his loan spell and there are doubts about Robin van Persie as well. 

Reports suggest that boss Louis van Gaal is in the market for two forwards in the summer window, and has been linked with the likes of Karim Benzema, Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Which TWO strikers do you think Manchester Unites should try and sign this summer?
