- Updated: April 5, 2014
Manchester United sent scouts to the Estádio da Capital do Móvel on Saturday night to watch one current Man United player and one potential future star of Old Trafford take part in the same game.
Pacos Ferreira played host to Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese top flight that drew on-loanee United man Bebe up against transfer target William Carvalho.
Whilst Bebe has been in fabulous recent goalscoring form, it was 21-year-old Carvalho who made the early impression.
William Carvalho broke the deadlock in the 14th minute when Slimani found the hot talent with a cheeky back heel, and Carvalho powered into the Pacos box before coolly finishing into the net.
According to reports in the People on March 23rd, Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon for £37m.
