Sporting Lisbon president Bruno de Carvalho has denied reports that the club have received a bid from Manchester United for William Carvalho.

The Red Devils were reported to be closing in on a deal for the defensive midfielder as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Is it inevitable to see some players leave? Nothing is inevitable

But Sporting chief De Carvalho said on Friday: “I haven’t received any formal or informal proposals for any of our players.”

Manchester City have also been linked with a move for the 22-year-old but De Carvalho insists that it is not guaranteed that the player will leave the Portuguese club this summer.

“Is it inevitable to see some players leave? Nothing is inevitable,” he added.

Carvalho scored eight goals in 29 league appearances for Sporting Lisbon last season.
