Manchester United are considering a £20 million move for Internacional star Nilmar. The Mirror says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson badly needs to strengthen his attacking options after losing both Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez this summer.

And the exciting Nilmar, 24, is one option as they look to revamp their squad.

Old Trafford scouts are out in force at the Confederations Cup where Nilmar, has taken his tally of Brazil caps to eight.

Agent Jorge Mendes, broker of Ronaldo's world-record transfer to Real Madrid, is said to be involved.
