MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly had a £60million bid rejected for Porto star Evanilson.
But a sale could be sanctioned if Paris Saint-Germain give up on a deal for his team-mate Vitinha.

And Brazilian ace Evanilson has emerged as the Dutch tactician’s top target.
At just 22 years old, he’s already netted 25 goals in 70 games for Porto.
Before that, Evanilson lit up his homeland with Fluminense, scoring 10 times in 26 outings.

Porto fear ripping up a title-winning team yet again will leave them chasing Benfica and Sporting Lisbon next season.
But midfield ace Vitinha is yet to pass his medical in the French capital.
