According to reports, Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes is close to joining Manchester United after the 22 year old was left out of Lille’s squad for their friendly game against Dutch side AZ Alkmaar.
The 22-year-old has been impressive for the Ligue 1 club this season and has been heavily linked with a number of top European sides, including the Red Devils.
With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen on defensive reinforcements, the player has been earmarked as a possible signing for the club.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton and Napoli have all been rumoured to be interested in a move for the Brazilian defender.
It was also reported that the player’s representatives were in UK last week to negotiate a deal for his potential move. What remains to be seen is when an announcement will be made on his imminent transfer.
