Manchester United have stepped up their interest in Brazilian wonder kid Adryan Oliveira Tavares, according to reports from South America.

United have sent officials to again watch Flamengo’s 17-year-old attacking midfielder according to O Globo, who claim Sir Alex Ferguson hopes to bring to Old Trafford duringb the summer.

La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona have also been linked with Adryan, dubbed the ‘new Romario’ and both clubs are said to have had officials at last years under-17 Fifa World Cup where Adryan starred during Brazil’s run to a fourth place finish.

It was during this tournament that United first travelled to South American to monitor the player.

United face stiff competition for the £2 million-rated youngster’s signature but it is believed the English side could be in the driving seat thanks to the progress Rafael and Fabio da Silva have made since arriving at Old Trafford from Flamengo’s rivals Fuminense in January 2008.
