The Brazilian starlet, 23, has been compared with fellow countryman Kaka after a great recent rise in the Bundesliga, showing an eye for goals and assists from a variety of attacking midfield positions.

Liverpool and Arsenal had previously been the frontrunners for Firmino’s signature, but United now hope to join the race to snap him up for next season.

Louis van Gaal’s side may be in need of improvements in that part of the pitch as doubts grow over Angel Di Maria’s future at Old Trafford.
