Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing the Portuguese young winger Gelson Martins from Sporting Lisbon.

The Premier League giants appear to be keen to lure the versatile midfielder to Old Trafford in the coming future, but according to Portuguese outlet Record – the 20-time English champions could face stiff competition for his signature, with the European champions Real Madrid are also said to be following Martins’s progress.

The 21-year-old attacker has been in sensational form for the Lions in all competitions so far this season, scoring 2 goals and registering 3 assists in 7 appearances.

The Red Devils’ interest is quite genuine, and it’d be an easy to understand why Jose Mourinho wants to bring him at Old Trafford either in January or next summer.

Martins captivates the wider attention of European football after he produced a impressive display for the Portuguese outfit in their 2-1 defeat of Los Merengues in the Champions League.
