The 19-year-old frontman, nicknamed Gabigol, has been tracked by some of the biggest clubs in world football over the past few years.

The Sun claim Premier League champions Leicester City were confident of signing the Santos star but his head has been turned by firm interest from United.

It is claimed the Red Devils will push through a deal for the Brazilian, who is currently in action at the Olympic Games, within the next 48 hours.

As well as United and Leicester, Italian giants Inter Milan and Juventus were both said to be interested in the player, as were Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona also showed an interest in the starlet in 2015 when he impressed at the South American Under-20 Championships.
