Benfica forward Umaro Embalo has held talks with Manchester United over a move to Old Trafford, his agent has confirmed.
Reports in Portugal earlier this week claimed United had struck a £5million agreement to sign the 16-year-old but Benfica have since dismissed the claims.
However, the interest in Embalo is clear and United are just one of a host of top European clubs tracking the teenager.
Real Madrid are believed to be keen on signing the striker but Embalo’s agent has confirmed he’s held ‘conversations’ with United about a transfer.
‘Nothing is done, and the conversation, nobody communicated anything to me, nor to the parents. He has interest from several clubs, because he is an asset of Benfica and has gone down this route well,’ Embalo’s agent told A Bola.
‘I can say that all the great clubs in Europe have already asked for information about Umaro, from Germany, England, Spain, France.
‘If he’s going to Manchester is something that I don’t know at all, but it’s true that we have already met with Benfica and Manchester, there is no agreement, but there are conversations.’
