Report: Manchester United want 19-year-old international attacker

Old Trafford

Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Benfica attacker Goncalo Guedes, according to the Daily Mirror.

The report claims the English giants’ scouts watched Guedes in action against Feirense last weekend and could make a move for him next summer.

The talented 19-year-old, who’s been dubbed as the ‘next Ronaldo’, has played 9 games in all competitions for Benfica so far this season, scoring 1 goal and providing 1 assist.

Even though he can play on either wing, he’s been used in a central role this season and has impressed with his technique and movement off the ball.

His versatility could make him a target for Manchester United, but if the Red Devils decide to sign him, the youngster would probably be used on the wing as Mourinho doesn’t need any more options up front.

The Portuguese champions are notorious for selling their best players for huge fees almost every summer and it seems like Guedes could be the next in line to make a big-money move.
