Manchester United are reportedly in advanced negotiations to sign Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches, according to O Jogo via the Metro.

Despite their well-documented problems in attack, United are yet to sign anyone during the transfer window, but they could complete a deal for the 18-year-old starlet before deadline day ends at 11pm on Monday.

The attacking midfielder is understood to have a release clause set at around £60 million by the Portuguese club, but the Red Devils are hoping that an offer of half of that will be enough to prise him away to the Premier League.

Sanches has made 11 appearances in all competitions this term, scoring two goals.
