Manchester United have missed out on Desportivo Brasil sensation Bruno Gomes after the teenager revealed he has opted to sign for Brazilian club Internacional.

The 17-year-old striker has visited United's Carrington training ground on a number of occasions over the past 18 months, with the Premier League champions thought to have had first refusal on him after Sir Alex Ferguson oversaw a deal to ensure he signs for the club upon his 18th birthday.

Despite frequently interacting with United fans on Twitter and posing in the club's training kits, it would appear Gomes has chosen a different destination, however, confirming through the social media website that he will join the likes of former United striker Diego Forlan and Leandro Damiao at Internacional.
