Man Utd push Sporting Lisbon to discuss William Carvalho terms

Manchester United hope to sign William Carvalho for below the buyout clause in his Sporting Lisbon contract. United boss David Moyes sees the defensive midfielder as an ideal addition to his powder-puff engineroom and Record says he's had scouts watch Carvalho 15 times this season.

The youngster's Sporting deal carries an escape clause of €45 million. However, Moyes is reluctant to go higher than €30 million for the player.

Complicating negotiations will be the status of Carvalho's registration, which is only part-owned by Sporting.
