Manchester United are already working on a deal to sign Monaco star Vanderson, according to The Sun.

However, the Red Devils face competition from Spanish side Barcelona for the transfer of the Brazilian right-back.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen on signing a right-back in January as he doesn’t rate Aaron Wan-Bissaka and the Red Devils boss is hoping to add the exciting 21 year old Brazilian right-back to his squad.

The former Gremio star only joined Monaco in January, but his fine performances quickly resulted in a new contract. Monaco reportedly value Vanderson at around £52million.

Barcelona tried to sign the right-back during the summer and are expected to make a move for him again in January.

Xavi is targeting a new right-back amongst others as he looks to keep pace with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid.

Monaco are now braced for enquiries and bids in the build-up to January.
