Manchester United to Revamp Squad with Excellent £20m Brazilian Striker

Sir Alex lines up replacement for Carlos Tevez.

The Rumour

SOCCER: JUN 18 Confederation Cup - Brazil v USA

Brazilian striker Nilmar is being tracked by Manchester United as they weigh up a £20million bid.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson badly needs to strengthen his attacking options after losing both Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez this summer.

And the exciting Nilmar, 24, is one option as they look to revamp their squad.

The Analysis

When Brazilian Nilmar first came to Europe he had a bit of a nightmare. The then 20 year old was signed by Lyon only to find that he was at the back of a very long line of good strikers and after three years he gave up on life at the French side and moved back to Internacional and it was a brave move that seems to have done the trick.

After scoring some wonder goals the 24 year old got his place back in the international set up after four years in the wilderness and now it appears that top European clubs are calling again, only this time it looks like the talented forward may well be ready for the jump to the big leagues.

Sir Alex is said to be a big fan and is eager to beat the likes of Man City, Chelsea and Real Madrid to Nilmar and sees the player as a replacement for Carlos Tevez.
