MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly monitoring Palmeiras wonderkid Thalys.

Endrick, 17, reached an agreement with the La Liga giants in December 2022 but is not permitted to complete the move until his 18th birthday.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Palmeiras will demand a similar fee for Thalys.
The striker, who has two years remaining on his contract, has already attracted interest from Italy.
And now Man Utd are keeping tabs on him.
United are expected to dip into the transfer market for a new forward this summer with Anthony Martial set to leave.
The Frenchman’s contract is set to expire in June and the Red Devils have no intention to extend it.
Thalys could be introduced to provide support for Rasmus Hojlund in attack.
Hojlund joined Man Utd in a £72m transfer from Atalanta in August.
He is currently one of the club’s only out-and-out strikers.
Meanwhile, Thalys has scored eight goals in 25 appearances for Palmeiras’ Under-20s since making his debut.
