Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have had their attention grasped with reports of their side’s interest in a top-target from the continent.
Portuguese newspaper A Bola confirms that United scouts were in attendance to watch Braga play in their recent match-up with Liberec, as the Red Devils tracked potential January recruits.
Sports Witness adds that 22-year-old Rafa Silva is the likely target for the Red Devils, with the Braga winger highly-rated and often compared to Premier League star Eden Hazard.
Louis Van Gaal has made it publicly clear that he intends to sign a pacy winger in the New Year and Rafa Silva could be the ideal recruit, with United holding long-term interest in the player; whilst Liverpool have also been stated as interested in his services.
United have a strong record of bringing talent from Portugal to England, with a positive track record that includes the likes of Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo.
