Manchester United eyeing up Benfica wonderkid to solve forward crisis
What do you mean Louis van Gaal is still looking for fresh attacking options?
The Manchester United manager saw Wayne Rooney score the winner against Liverpool on Sunday, and following on from his impressive showing against Newcastle last week, the England man seems to have rediscovered his form.
So why on earth, one may ask, are the club being linked with a Portuguese wonderkid that by all accounts is going to cost them a shedload of cash?
Well, you fools, because of this debut goal in December for Benfica against Academica de Coimbra.
Renato Sanches is the 18 year old at the centre of a major transfer bid from Manchester United, and the latest attempt to try and shake up the club's ponderous midfield.
Reports in Portugal today are suggesting the English club are looking to pay close to almost €65million for a kid who has been described as 'the new Ronaldinho'.
Manchester United aren't the only club linked with the player of course and it's being suggested any deal for the 18-year-old will see him stay with his childhood club until the summer, or perhaps for another 18 months.
And it seems the stats don't lie
