Man Utd ‘chasing two Brazilian wonderkids’ but will have to pay around £100m and face competition from Chelsea | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly chasing two Brazilian wonderkids.
But they could have to cough up around £100million to see off interest from Chelsea.
The Red Devils have endured an underwhelming start to the new campaign.
They have already lost six matches in all competitions.
And United almost notched up a seventh defeat before Scott McTominay’s late double against Brentford on Saturday.
But Red Devils chiefs continue to back Erik ten Hag after a major transfer splurge in the summer window.

And they are already making plans for future signings, with two Brazilian teens on their wish list.
Fabrizio Romano claims Palmeiras midfielder Luis Guilherme and Flamengo winger Lorran have both caught Ten Hag’s eye.
The Red Devils have been scouting the pair, both 17, in recent weeks.
United have been sending staff to watch numerous players across South America, but it’s reckoned Guilherme and Lorran have impressed the most.

Unfortunately for United, they face a battle with Chelsea to sign Lorran.
Guilherme is also being chased by “five important European clubs.”
And according to Mundo Deportivo, Lorran also has a £43m release clause, with Guilherme boasting a £52m option.
It means United will have to fork out nearly £100m for the pair while also seeing off interest from major rivals.
But after their struggles to the new season, chiefs could be tempted to back Ten Hag once more.
Romano said: “Keep an eye on United in South America because they sent scouts, as well as Chelsea, to follow Lorran from Flamengo.
“United scouts were in attendance, but from what I’m hearing there’s one more player being monitored.
“This is Luis Guilherme. Someone from United’s scouting department is travelling around Brazil to keep an eye on these players.
