for Brazilian prodigy Gabriel Barbosa
Clubs across Europe have been tracking the striker but his head has been turned after learning of United's interest
MANCHESTER UNITED are ready to blow the opposition out of the water by launching a £30million deal to take Brazilian wonder kid Gabriel Barbosa to Old Trafford.
Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester thought they had won the race to sign the 19-year-old Santos striker, who has emerged as one of the hottest young properties in football after setting the Rio Olympics alight.
The Foxes were convinced they had beaten off Italian giants Inter Milan and Juventus, as well as Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, after the teenage striker told them he had his heart set on playing in the Premier League.
However SunSport can reveal Jose Mourinho is now in pole position to land the Samba superkid, with United set to push through a whopping £30million deal within the next 48 hours to outmuscle the reigning champions.
The Old Trafford giants need another striker to back up Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mourinho made it clear Barbosa is the perfect fit for his Reds revolution.
