Manchester United are reportedly lining up a £12m bid for Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva.

The 21-year-old featured for Brazil in this summer's Toulon Tournament, scoring against England in the group stage before the Selecao eventually went on to lift the trophy.

Shoot claims that Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal could now make an approach for the youngster after seemingly missing out on Juventus star Arturo Vidal.

United kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 2-1 defeat against Swansea City last weekend.
