United already added the likes of Largie Ramazani and Aliou Badara Traore to the academy set-up in the summer.

Manchester United are on the verge of completing a deal for Oliveirense youngster Bruno Amorim, Lusa has reported.

The Red Devils scouts spotted the 19-year-old in action for the Portuguese second tier club last term, where he made seven appearances.

United have also made notable additions to their senior side, spending £145.7million, with nearly half of that going to Everton for the transfer of Romelu Lukaku.

He said: "He had been promoted to the main squad, but the scouting (Manchester United) was already aware and chose to take him there to experience".

"The contract will shortly be announced, but it is a future bet on United".

"[Oliveirense] will receive training rights, because he has been developed here, although in monetary terms [the club] may not receive more than that, because there may be other stipulations", he said.

Although Manchester United are only expected to pay Oliveirense a fee for training rights, the deal is seen well in Portugal, especially because it's expected the partnership could provide a good interchange relation between the two clubs.

It should be seen whether Amorim will be included in the first squad or will be played for United's Under-23 side.

Lukaku could make his United debut, along with Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof, on Sunday when United begin their Premier League campaign at home to West Ham.
