Sir Alex Ferguson and his scouting staff have established a reputation for plucking youngsters from South America and integrating them into life in English football, could we soon be welcoming another though?

Speculation has us linked with a nineteen year-old striker who is on the books of the Brazilian side, Santos.

Neilton is being talked about as being, potentially, as good as Naymar and sources suggest that he could be available for as little as £5 million, according to the buy-out clause inserted in his contract.

As for potential rivals for his services, look no further than Chelsea. The West London club could, possibly, have the edge over us on this one seeing as they appear to have a growing Brazilian contingent in their squad.
