Sir Alex is looking closely at this Brazilian international, who could well be looking for a new challenge and a move to the Premier League.
Manchester United are keen on Sevilla wing-back Adriano.
The left-sided Brazilian can play as left-back or wing and was watched by United scouts last week in UEFA Cup action against Standard Liege.
Adriano is still stumbling through new contract talks with Sevilla and is being followed closely by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. (tribalfootball.com)
Adriano is one of those players who has you on the edge of your seat, a hugely gifted player who is as good defensively as he is on the attack and I can see why Sir Alex is showing an interest in the La Liga star. After four years at Sevilla, it appears he is ready to move on to bigger and better things and, with his current club arguably only moving backwards since they lost Ramos to Spurs, this could well be the right time to attempt to woo him to Old Trafford. Do Manchester United fans think the club needs to strengthen their left side with a signing such as this one?
