Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to raid Sporting Lisbon again.

After landing Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani in recent years, Fergie is now chasing Sporting's Nigerian teenager Rabiu Ibrahim.

Ibrahim, 17, has caught Manchester United's eye and Fergie is hoping his relationship with Sporting Lisbon can give him the edge on Liverpool and Chelsea, who have been watching the attacking midfielder, says the Mirror.
