Manchester United are allegedly contemplating an approach for Sporting Lisbon teenager Luis Gomes, who has been compared to legendary midfielder Luis Figo.

Manchester United have reportedly identified Sporting Lisbon youngster Luis Gomes as a potential future signing.

On the final day of the transfer window, United confirmed the arrivals of three new players, while Amad Traore is also expected to move to Old Trafford in January.

However, according to The Mirror, the Premier League giants are contemplating another addition in the final third.

Gomes, who has been dubbed as 'the new Luis Figo', has recently penned a long-term contract with Sporting, where he is expected to remain for the foreseeable future.

However, it is suggested that United have agreed terms where they get the first chance to purchase the 16-year-old, who will be available for £14m.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani and Bruno Fernandes have all left Sporting for United in the past.
