Manchester United are reportedly monitoring Matheus Pereira as he continues to impress on loan at West Brom.

The Brazilian has registered three goals and six assists since he agreed a loan deal to join the Baggies, who sit on top of the Championship table, from Sporting Lisbon in the summer.

And the Daily Mirror claims that the 23-year-old has ‘caught the eye of several top-flight clubs’ with United one of the clubs ‘keeping tabs’ on his progress.

The report adds that West Brom have the option to make the deal for Pereira – who has impressed in previous loans at Nuremburg and Chaves – permanent in the summer for £8.25million but that is unlikely to ‘put off other admirers’.

And the Daily Mirror continues by saying United are also ‘plotting a £200million double swoop for Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland in January’.

The pair are likely to set the Red Devils back around £200million but that doesn’t seem to be putting them off as they get ‘ready to move swiftly when the window re-opens’.

Both players have been heavily linked with United in recent weeks with Haaland smashing in the goals for Red Bull Salzburg, while Sancho has been having a bit of a difficult time at Borrussia Dortmund recently.

Sancho was hauled off last weekend after 35 minutes and there are rumours of ‘discord between Sancho and Dortmund’.
