MANCHESTER UNITED are close to announcing the signing of young striker Bruno Amorim from Oliveirense.
The 19-year-old whizkid is poised to join the academy at the Red Devils after the Portuguese side’s club director confirmed the deal.
Speaking to Noticias ao Minuto, Antonio Jose Leite revealed that the move is “90% done” with the transfer to be completed imminently.
He said: “He had been promoted to the main squad, but the scouting (Manchester United) was already aware and decided to take him there to experience.
“At this time the business is 90% done and he can have an excellent contract.
“The contract will shortly be announced, but it is a future bet on United.”
Dubbed as one of the most exciting youngsters in Portugal, he impressed United scouts after his seven appearances in the third-tier where he helped them to promotion.
He is set to link up with Nicky Butt’s Under-23 side, joining Largie Ramazani and Aliou Badara Traore who were also brought in this summer.
It appears that United will pay a minimal fee to Oliveirense to bring the teenager to Old Trafford.
Leite added: “We’ll receive training rights because he’s always been trained here, although in monetary terms it may not be more than that.
“These details are not yet defined.
“But the training rights and future sales of the player are guaranteed gains.”
