Dodo arrived at Manchester United last week ahead of sealing his transfer from Corinthians.

Brazilian sources say the 17 year-old defender was in Manchester on Monday to meet with his new teammates and do some strength and conditioning work.

Corinthians will sell Dodo to United in February for £5 million, with 70 per cent of the fee going to Brazilian management firm Traffic.

The youngster is yet to make his senior debut at Corinthians.
