Manchester United are rumoured to be keeping tabs on Brazil's latest twin talents Alex and Andre Santos reports talkSPORT.

The pair, who recently signed four-year deals with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, are yet to appear for the first-team, but are tipped for bright futures having emerged from South America with big reputations.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a known admirer of young, up-and-coming talent from that part of the world, having snapped up teenage twins Rafael and Fabio Da Silva from Fluminese three years ago.

And history could be about to repeat itself, as Fergie deploys his team of Manchester United scouts to run the rule over the promising duo, with a view to bringing the 19-year-old siblings to Old Trafford.


The Santos brothers will be monitored closely, to see how they are progressing in Holland, before the Barclays Premier League champions make a decision - based very much on the future of Manchester United football club - as to whether or not they could have a future with the Reds.

Sources in Brazil have indicated that United's track record with the success of the Da Silva twins means the Santos brothers are well-placed as they look to realise their dream.
