Manchester United have signed Brazilian teenager Rafael Leao on loan.
The defensive midfielder has joined on a short term deal from feeder club Desportivo Brasil, and will train with the academy at Old Trafford until June 30th.
A touch-tackling player compared to Dunga by the Daily Mail, Leao is set to turn 18 next week and United have the option to make the move permanent for the player.
Sir Alex Ferguson is also thought to have first option on four other players at the club as part of the deal set-up between the two parties back in November 2008.
All five have been to Old Trafford, and recently sat in the directors box when Manchester United beat Bolton Wanderers in the Barclays Premier League.
Leao is the first to spend an elongated period of time with the Red Devils out of the five, and will have the chance to impress the Manchester United coaches at Carrington in the coming weeks.
