Man Utd set to sign Portugal star: Talks held for £45m move, he will earn £140,000-a-week

United blew a 2-1 lead to crash 3-2 and now face a losing battle to secure Champions League qualification.

This is expected to spell the end for Van Gaal but United power brokers still want Mario, 23, to come in and bolster the team’s midfield.

The English giants have been scouting him for several months and believe he will be a huge success in the Premier League.

Mario, who has won eight caps, has made 37 appearances for Sporting this season, scoring seven goals and been one of the stand-out midfielders in Europe.
