Manchester United have been active in the Portuguese transfer market in the past week.

A Bola says United had scouts posted on the weekend to see Porto's 1-0 defeat to Academica.

United reps were again making a check on France defender Eliaquim Mangala and his Porto teammate Alex Sandro, the Brazilian left-back.

AS Monaco also had scouts present to watch Mangala.
