Man Utd chasing Brazilian starlet

The 21-year-old has been dubbed the new Kaka and is widely expected to leave Santos in the near future, according to the People.

United are hoping to beat rivals AC Milan, Paris St Germain and Tottenham in the race to sign the midfielder.

Santos have officially put a £45million asking-price for the midfielder, but reports claim the Brazilian side could allow him to leave for around £25million.
