Sporting youngster would jump at Old Trafford move

Sporting Lisbon ace Miguel Veloso admits joining Manchester United would be a 'dream'. The Portugal Under 21 international has been linked with a move to the Premier League champions in recent weeks. Capable of playing in defence or midfield, Veloso would relish the chance to link up with former Sporting starlets Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani at Old Trafford. He is rated in the £8million bracket and, while happy at his current club, would be a tempted by an offer from United.

Sensational

"To join United is a dream for any player," Veloso is quoted in the News of the World. "I'm happy in Portugal, but if a chance to join such a big club like them came along I would jump at it. "Nani speaks sensationally about United and it would be sensational for me to play there with him and Cristiano." Veloso produced a solid performance in Sporting's recent 1-0 defeat to United in the UEFA Champions League and will come up against his suitors for a second time in late November.
