Man Utd battle Shakhtar Donetsk as Jose Boto departs Benfica

Jose Boto is leaving his position as chief scout at Benfica.

Boto has been linked with Manchester United, where manager Jose Mourinho is a big fan. However, they'll face competition from Shakhtar Donetsk.

O Jogo says Boto has been in talks with United for several months, but Shakhtar have tabled a firm contract offer to the Portuguese.

United want Boto to join their scouting team, while Shakhtar's offer is for him to become their new technical director.

The experienced talent spotter has been credited for keeping Benfica's finances in a healthy state thanks to the sell on factor of the players he has identified for the club.
