The 17-year-old Fluminense starlet has quickly emerged as one of South America’s most sought after youngsters, following eight impressive first-team performances.
Real Madrid are believed to be keen on enticing him away from his homeland, but United are also monitoring the situation.
Although he has been exciting at club level, it’s on the international scene that Kenedy has really shone.
The striker helped Brazil to victory in the World U-17 Cup, and also netted a staggering six goals in the South American U-17 tournament in April.
This has alerted David Moyes, who is keen to bring in young stars as he plans for the future at Old Trafford.
Although a number of clubs are interested, the Red Devils are confident that their relationship with Fluminense – from whom they signed Rafael and Fabio – may help them to secure an agreement.
If a deal can be reached, the Premier League champions would have to abide by Brazilian rules for signing young players by waiting until he is 18 to conclude a switch.
Manchester United fans, should you be looking at talented youngsters? Or are big name, first-team players what you need?
