Manchester United may 'park' new Angolan signing Manucho Goncalves at Portugal's Sporting Lisbon.

United are understood to have agreed a deal with Petro de Luanda for Goncalves after the striker enjoyed successful trials in England earlier this month.

Goncalves doesn't have enough caps with Angola to qualify for a work permit and could be placed at Sporting on-loan to gain his European passport. The forward is expected to sign a four-year contract with United.
