Manchester United are closing in on the transfer of highly-rated Chelsea midfielder Domingos Quina this season.
The 16-year-old Portuguese midfielder is frustrated with the lack of chances at Chelsea and believes that he can progress with a move to Old Trafford.
Manchester United have a great track record of relying on youth and Quina feels that he has a better chance of making the grade at Old Trafford than Stamford Bridge.
The Portuguese midfielder is regarded as one of the best players of his age in Europe and his goalscoring ability at this age has attracted a lot of interest from other European heavyweights as well.
Quina has already been capped by Portugal at the Under-17 level and has been a key part of Chelsea’s youth set-up over the last three seasons after being recruited from Benfica.
According to reports from Daily Mirror, Manchester United are preparing a bumper offer for the talented midfielder and will offer him a package that will be hard to refuse.
The Old Trafford outfit faces tough competition from Arsenal for the 16-year-old. Arsenal have a great track record of developing young players and Quina could well be tempted to play under Arsene Wenger.
Earlier there were reports that Manchester United are planning a massive overhaul of their Academy and youth recruitment set-up and the signing of Quina could be a massive step forward in the right direction.
