Benfica striker Umaro Embalo's agent has confirmed a meeting with the Portuguese club and Manchester United, but denied any agreement between the two clubs for the attacker's transfer to Old Trafford.
Portuguese publication Record earlier reported the Red Devils have agreed a deal with Benfica in bringing the Guinea-Bissau-born 16-year-old to England. His style of play has seen him being dubbed as the "new Angel Di Maria."
Javier Ribalta left Juventus for Manchester United in the summer and is the 20-time English champions' chief scout. It is believed that Ribalta watched Embalo in action during a 2-2 Uefa Youth League draw between Benfica and the Red Devils.
The young attacker's agent has rubbished those reports after confirming no deal has been agreed between United and Benfica. Embalo's representative stressed that his client is attracting interest from Germany, England, Spain, France.
"Nothing is done, and the conversation, nobody communicated anything to me, nor to the parents. He has interest from several clubs, because he is an asset of Benfica and has gone down this route well," Embalo's agent told A Bola, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
"I can say that all the great clubs in Europe have already asked for information about Umaro, from Germany, England, Spain, France.
"If he's going to Manchester is something that I don't know at all, but it's true that we have already met with Benfica and Manchester, there is no agreement, but there are conversations."
Embalo can play anywhere in the front there, either as a striker or a winger. His impressive form at the youth level has seen him attract interest from the host of European clubs. According to ESPN, United have been monitoring the teenager's progress for the last 12 months.
