Man Utd sign the new Dunga: Rafael Leao joins on-loan

Manchester United have signed Brazilian youngster Rafael Leao.

He joins on loan from their Brazilian feeder academy Desportivo Brasil and United have the option to make the move permanent, says the Daily Mail.

Leao, a tough-tackling midfielder who has been compared to 1994 World Cup-winning captain Dunga, turns 18 next week and will train with the United academy for the rest of the season.

It has not yet been confirmed whether the move is subject to a work permit.
