The club are said to be tracking Valencia midfielder Andre Gomes, Benfica teenager Renato Sanches and Monaco midfielder Bernado Silva, report the Daily Mirror.

The trio are all clients of super agent Jorge Mendes, who is also the agent of Jose Mourinho, the odds-on favourite to replace under pressure current manager Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford in the summer.

Sanches, 18, has ong been linked with a move to Manchester United, with a £31million previously reported to have been made.

Silva, 21, has been in and out of the Monaco side this season, while Gomes has been compared to Michael Ballack and is a regular in Gary Neville's team.
