Manchester United Join Barcelona In Race For 15-year-old Benfica Star With Familiar Name

We think we’ve heard this one before...

Manchester United are set to look to Portugal to add a potentially top class youngster to their ranks. The player in question is a spritely teenager by the name of Ronaldo.

Ronaldo Camará, that is.

The 15-year-old attacker is being “closely watched” by them, as well as Barcelona, according to reports from the Portuguese outlet Record.

A member of the Lisbon giants’ u-17 squad, the Portuguese-Guinean made the step up to u-19 level to feature for his club’s UEFA Youth League tie against Ajax last month.

The youngster started his career with Benfica’s cross-town rivals Sporting CP before crossing the divide, and has scored for his nation at u-15 and u-16 level and appeared for their u-17 side at the age of just 15.

A tricky operator with a turn of pace and a powerful shot, he’s got more than a few similarities to the last player with his name that made the move from Lisbon to Manchester.

Manchester United are not a club short on young talent in their at the moment, though, with their own u-19 outfit putting in some impressive displays in UEFA’s Youth League this term.

Managed by former player Nicky Butt, they’ve won three from three in the competition so far, beating Young boys, Valencia and Juventus by an aggregate scoreline of 10-2.

The young wide player Tahith Chong, who has himself been in fine form in continental competition for the underage outfit, made Jose Mourinho’s bench for the senior side’s encounter with Juventus at Old Trafford last month.
