Man Utd to bring forward deal for Corinthians defender Dodo

Manchester United are ready to close a deal for Corinthians defender Dodo.

The Sunday Mirror says United are chasing another boy from Brazil - and will make a move for Corinthians' Dodo this summer to kill off ­interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona.

United have an agreement that gives them first option on the 18-year-old until he turns 21 in 2013.

But the Reds will look to seal a deal with Corinthians after firm enquiries from the two Spanish giants.

Dodo, who can play as a left-back or in central ­defence, has been on ­United's radar for the past year.
