Manchester United are being linked with a move for highly-rated Brazilian winger Gabriel Veron.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the likes of United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all keen on the Palmeiras right-winger, who had an impressive U-17 World Cup campaign.

The 17-year-old, who has been likened to fellow Brazilian Douglas Costa, recently signed a new deal with Palmeiras and Globo Esporte claims that the youngster has a release clause of £51million.

The teenage sensation scored three goals and provided three assists in seven appearances to help Brazil win the U-17 World Cup and was named the Player of the Tournament.

Veron scored in the semi-final clash against France and grabbed an important assist against Mexico in the final.


Veron is being viewed as a development option at Old Trafford who could eventually push the likes of Dan James and Marcus Rashford in the wide positions for Ole Gunnar Solskaer’s men.
