The agent of sought-after forward Gabriel Barbosa has dismissed reports his client is set to join Manchester United.

Santos striker Barbosa, also known as Gabigol, has been linked with a host of clubs around Europe after being dubbed the ‘new Neymar’.

Reports on Tuesday suggested United would win the race for the Brazil prodigy, who has impressed at the Rio Olympics, with a £30million

However, when asked by Brazilian broadcaster Globo Esporte whether the 19-year-old is set to move to Old Trafford, agent Wagner Ribeiro insists the talk is “merely speculation”.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho appears more concerned about adding another defender to his squad, with United reportedly competing with Arsenal to land Southampton centre-back Jose Fonte.
