Man Utd will not rush into Elderson Echiejile signing

Manchester United will not be making any early swoop for Braga fullback Elderson Echiejile.

The People says the powerful defender would qualify for a work permit because he has been a Nigeria regular.

However, United will do more checks on him after the fallout about Bebe, who moved to them in similar circumstances.

He went from obscurity to make two moves in a ­matter of weeks and was signed on the advice of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson's Portuguese spies.

So United are keen to be sure about a move for Elderson.
