Man Utd plotting transfer raid on Gremio for Brazilian sensation Arthur Melo

The 21-year-old now plays for Gremio in his home country and his impressive performances have been attracting interest from Europe's biggest clubs.

Melo, who plays as an attacking midfielder, has been watched by Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona this term and was recently called up to Brazil's national squad.

And according to The Daily Mail, Jose Mourinho has made it clear he wants to bring the youngster to the Premier League.

The 21-year-old's attracted interest from across Europe this season after guiding the Brazilian club to the Copa Libertadores final.

His displays earned him a call-up to Brazil's squad for last month's World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Chile, with Arthur remaining on the bench for both games.

He has made a midfield berth his own this year, starting 37 games on his way to South America's equivalent of the Champions League final.

Melo does have a small link with Chelsea after ex-Blues manager Luiz Felipe Scolari gave the playmaker his Gremio debut in 2016.

Mourinho has demanded more money for transfers in January amid fears from the board he could quit the club for PSG.
