Manchester United have agreed a fee with Sporting Lisbon for midfielder William Carvalho. The People says Carvalho's agent was given a tour of the club's Carrington training ground last week.

Portuguese international Carvalho will sign for United for £37million before the World Cup finals in Brazil.

United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been working hard to put deals in place and Sporting's highly-rated youngster Carvalho looks like being the first of at least FIVE major signings.
