United are reportedly moving for Benfica’s Armando Petit.

Petit: ‘Yes it is true. I have received an offer from Manchester United.’

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is attempting to strengthen his midfield and Tottenham confirmed last week they had turned down an offer from Old Trafford for England midfielder Michael Carrick.

Lyon midfielder Mahamadou Diarra is another reported target.
