Barbosa, nicknamed Gabigol, is one of the most sought-after players in Brazil and the likes of Juventus, Leicester City and Inter Milan are believed to have had bids rejected for the 19-year-old forward.

Barcelona and Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in the striker, who has hit 21 goals in each of the last two seasons.

Jose Mourinho’s side have spent close to £145million this summer but Roma has confirmed that he held talks with the Red Devils, as well as Chelsea and Atletico Madrid, over the signing of Barbosa and team-mate Thiago Maia this week.
