Man United run rule over Sporting Lisbon midfielder

Man United run rule over Sporting Lisbon midfielder

Manchester United could step up their interest in William Carvalho after scouting the Sporting Lisbon midfielder yet again.

The Premier League champions have watched the 21-year-old several times this year and had scouts in attendance at the Estadio Cidade de Barcelos on Sunday to keep an eye on him during Sporting’s 2-0 win over Gil Vicente.

David Moyes is expect to bolster his squad in January following United’s underwhelming start to the season and a new midfielder is on his shortlist after missing out on Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera in the summer.

United hope their good relationship with Sporting – they bought Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani from the Portuguese club – will give them an advantage over Inter Milan, who also dispatched scouts to watch Carvalho on Sunday.

The Angola-born midfielder, who has four and a half years left on his contract, earned his first cap for Portugal last month during their 3-2 World Cup qualifying play-off win in Sweden.
