The Red Devils have been hot on the heels of the talented 18-year-old for much of the season and it was reported earlier this week that they had seen off competition from Manchester City to sign the midfielder.

Portuguese newspaper O Jogo has now revealed that Benfica’s Vieira has been in Manchester for two days to hold talks with United’s Ed Woodward in the hope of hammering out the finer details of the 60million euro transfer.

O Jogo claim that a deal has yet to be finalised as Benfica are eager to receive more money up front and less in bonus payments, with United having offered to cough up 40million euros initially.

Vieira remains confident an agreement will eventually be reached and that Sanches will make the move to Old Trafford once the summer transfer window opens.
