Reports have emerged claiming that Manchester United had scouts posted to Bayern Munich’s Champions League triumph over Benfica last night.

The Manchester Evening News says United watched Benfica whiz Renato Sanches play 90 minutes in their 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich, with United said to be lining up a £40million bid in the summer.

Sanches’ agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Jose Mourinho , has taken phone calls from Ed Woodward regarding United’s interest in the teenager and Mourinho’s possible arrival might give United the advantage, amid interest from other clubs.

Benfica were knocked out by Bayern Munich at the Estadio da Luz, where Arsenal scouts were also said to be in attendance.
