Monteiro would eventually agree to sign for Manchester United
Manchester United have managed to hold off strong competition from neighbouring City to agree a deal for promising starlet Venancio da Silva Monteiro, reports The Mail.
The 15-year-old has been training with the Red Devils after leaving Benfica in April and has thoroughly impressed coaches at the Aon training complex. However, it was only a fortnight ago that Manchester United had appeared to miss out on Monteiro.And I know you are his fans, so buy FIFA 15 coins to play side by side with him.
A report in the same newspaper claimed that Manchester City had swooped in and offered the Portuguese winger the chance to join Patrick Vieira’s elite development squad at their state of the art £200 million training complex, which opened its doors last week.
It was a surprising turn of events as it had been assumed that Monteiro would eventually agree to sign for Manchester United despite paperwork preventing him from playing for their youth team.
It now appears Monteiro has agreed to sign a professional contract with Manchester United when he eventually turns 16. With coaches having high hopes for his future, it brings an end to a situation that threatened to bare comparison to that of Paul Pogba.
