BBC Sport is reporting that the Red Devils are getting closer to completing a deal to bring the 19-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.
The same report also claims that Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk as Jose Mourinho looks for his first signing of the summer transfer window.
Mourinho is thought to be keen to add a new right-back to his squad to bring in cover for Antonio Valencia.
Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of top signings this summer as they bid to try and build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last season and without a trophy in Mourinho’s second campaign in charge.
Manchester United will look to mount a title challenge next season as they bid to try and win the Premier League for the first time since 2013.
