Manchester United have targeted two Brazilian teenage prospects after a recent scouting trip to South America. United scouts were impressed by 17-year-old midfielders Luis Guilherme of Palmeiras and Flamengo’s Lorran.
Guilherme has become a regular for Palmeiras’ first team and plays for Brazil’s U-20 national side. Lorran stars for Brazil’s U-17 team. However, both players could cost around £100 million to sign according to transfer reports.
Fabrizio Romano reported that Guilherme has a £52 million release clause in his contract, while Lorran has a similar £43 million buyout price. Romano noted that United scouts have been closely watching the pair in Brazil. But they may face competition from other European clubs who have also been scouting the teenagers.
While United evaluate potential moves, Erik ten Hag’s side got a much-needed Premier League win over the weekend. Scott McTominay scored two late goals to earn United a victory against Brentford at Old Trafford. The Red Devils will hope to boost their squad with future Brazilian talents like Guilherme and Lorran.
