The 22-year-old is rated as one of world football’s most exciting young right-backs, finishing last season with six goals and four assists in 34 Ligue 1 appearances.
Napoli are known to be targeting the Brazil international, who has picked up four caps since his 2015 debut, but renowned super agent Jorge Mendes is reportedly working to bring him to Manchester United this summer instead.
That’s according to Gianluca Di Marzio – a journalist for Sky Italia who also runs his own transfer rumour website.
But it does correspond with reports claiming Jose Mourinho will look to offload the Red Devils’ resident No.2 Matteo Darmian during the summer window courtesy of TuttoSport.
The Italy international hasn’t quite hit the heights expected since moving to Old Trafford from Torino last summer.
