Man United enter the battle to sign 17-year-old Brazil international

Red Devils join the race to sign Fluminense centre-forward Joao Pedro and prepare to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. Man United have problems in the front-line as Romelu Lukaku, and Marcus Rashford linked with several clubs, and they need back-up.

The Brazilian striker is the perfect option in this situation as he has a fantastic season and paid attention. Norwegian manager will do everything to sign him this summer, but it will be difficult as Barcelona and Liverpool also plan to make an offer during the transfer window.

Joao is a product of the Fluzão youth academy and spent his current career with them. He has a vast potential and can become a top-class centre-forward if he continuous improvement. In this campaign, Pedro already made seven appearances, scored six goals and provided one assist in all tournament.

It is an impressive result, and he can improve his consequences with world-class teammates. The 17-year-old striker has contracted with the Brazilian club until 2021, and his release clause is nearly €20m. Probably he will accept the correct offer from Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Man United had terrible results in this campaign as they finished the Premier League in a sixth place and kicked out from the Champions League and FA Cup. English club already signed Swansea forward Daniel James this summer.

Red Devils heavily linked with Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Sporting attacker Bruno Fernandes, Juventus superstar Paulo Dybala, Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt and Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
