Manchester United have reportedly opened negotiations with Corinthians over the signing of defender Guilherme Arana.
United are allegedly going head to head with Inter Milan to sign the Brazilian left-back, who has represented his country at Under-20 level.
However, according to Calciomercato, United have the edge over the Italian giants due to Inter's restrictions on being able to sign non-EU players.
It has been suggested that United have already held talks with Arana's agent as they look to secure a potential replacement for Luke Shaw.
While Shaw has made 12 appearances this season, he has been criticised by United manager Jose Mourinho.
