Manchester United are weighing up a bid for Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho. United have been following Moutinho since his days at Sporting Lisbon, when he was recommended to Old Trafford by Carlos Queiroz.

The Sunday Mirror says Moutinho's head has been turned by the new interest from Old Trafford - and United have been told that they will get their man if a fee can be agreed with Porto.

Moutinho has a £40m buy-out clause in his contract, but a bid of around £30m would persuade Porto to sell.
