Manchester United have agreed a fee for Hoffenheim forward Roberto Firmino, according to the Metro. However, could there be other Brazilians that would be a better fit at Old Trafford?

These five are even similar players to the 23-year-old, mostly featuring in attacking midfield. Should the Red Devils have gone after one of this group instead?

Despite being linked to Old Trafford throughout the last few months, the 22-year-old has now admitted that a move is unlikely in a report from the Manchester Evening News. He managed 11 goals and seven assists in 37 appearances last season, which is less than Firmino’s 12 and 10 but he is also a year younger.
