The Portuguese club reportedly made a £3million offer for the 18-year-old which appears to have been accepted by the Scottish Premiership side.

Gauld is now set to undergo a medical with Sporting, although it has not been confirmed whether or not he has agreed personal terms.

Scotland U21 international Gauld was a first-team regular for United last season and was rewarded with a new deal in December.

His impressive displays earned him the nickname ‘Mini Messi’ and saw him linked with European giants Real Madrid and Roma, while Manchester United and Arsenal are also thought to have taken an interest in him.

But Sporting could have won the race to sign Gauld, who returned to Tannadice for pre-season training on Monday.

You'll be able to watch Sporting Lisbon in Champions League action next season on Sky Sports 5 - the new home of European football.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
