Cruzeiro are reportedly ready to consider offers of around £8.5m for the goal-scoring midfielder, who can play either out wide on the left or in an advanced central midfield role, who has netted 15 goals in all competitions for his Belo Horizonte based club.
David Moyes could well feel his side could do with some added creativity as well as performers who can suitably link midfield and attack and given the average form displayed by the likes of Ashley Young, Shinji Kagawa and Nani there is more than likely to be space for such an addition with the Old Trafford boss likely to consider selling under-performing members of his Man United squad.
Man United have had an up and down time of it thus far this season with Moyes already seeing his side suffer three Premier League defeats and currently sit in sixth spot in the table, seven points off top of the pile Arsenal.
