United near signing of new attacker, club official claims
Manchester United are now close to wrapping up the signing of a promising new attacker in Oliveirense forward Bruno Amorim.
The 19-year-old was identified by United scouts last season as he featured in the second division of Portuguese football.
Jose Mourinho’s side have so far been able to bring in the likes of Victor lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic so far.
And according to Oliveirense communication director António Jose Leite, the Red Devils are now nearing a deal for another attacking player.
“He had been promoted to the main squad but [United’s] scout was alert and decided to take him there,” Leite was quoted as saying by IB Times
“At this time the business is 90 percent done and he may have an excellent contract ahead.
“The contract will shortly be announced, but he is a future bet at United.”
Manchester United have also been linked with moves for Ivan Perisic and Serge Aurier but there has been no formal word from the club on those deals.
The Red Devils are preparing to welcome West Ham to Old Trafford on Sunday in their opening game of the 2017/18 Premier League season.https://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-near-signing-new-attacker-club-official-claims/
