The Brazil international is highly sought after and has been linked with a move to the Premier League with Tottenham believed to be interested in his services.

But Porto appear best placed to secure a deal for the 20-year-old as the player himself has spoken out about the possibility of a transfer to Portugal.

"When they talked about Porto, the first name that came to mind was Hulk, who succeeded there," Bernard told A Bola.

"I talked with him so that he could tell me everything about the club. He told me to that it is a big and very well run club. He said wonderful things about them."

While Bernard praised Porto, he stopped short of saying he had a preference for the Portuguese giants.

He added: "It's difficult to say I have a preference for Porto - because of the language, customs or club history - as the European transfer window is open at the moment and the other clubs I have been linked with are good too.

"I prefer to say that I have no preference. But Porto are a very good club, with a great structure and are always in the Champions League. I am proud to be linked to a club like that."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
