FC Porto defender Danilo is currently attracting transfer interest from Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid, with several top European clubs keeping tabs on the £37 million rated man.
The Red Devils appear to have the upper hand in the race for the Brazilian full-back, though, as they would be willing to trigger his buy-out clause, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
At 23, Danilo is full of promise and is attracting attention from some prestigious suitors.
With eight international caps to his name, the South American has also been an ever-present for his club side this season, making 82 appearances and scoring eight goals since joining the Portuguese club from Santos back in 2012.
The young Porto star would be a straight up replacement for out-of-favour Rafael on the right side of Louis van Gaal's defence.
The Red Devils face heavy competition from both Barca and Real Madrid as they look to steal Danilo from under the Premier League giants' noses.
Barcelona will be looking to find a swift replacement for Dani Alves if they decide against renewing his contract as summer signing Douglas and Martin Montoya both have failed to impress boss Luis Enrique.
They would have to wait until 2016 if they were to sign him due their transfer embargo.
With United’s defence being heavily criticised from all angles this season it would like Van Gaal’s top priority in the summer is buying a new defender, and he is moving swiftly with that decision.
The last time United signed a player from Porto was Anderson, I’m sure they wont be looking to make the same mistake again.
