Vitinha celebrates with his winner's medal

Manchester United target Vitinha is reportedly set to join Paris Saint-Germain, dealing a blow to Erik ten Hag in his first summer at Old Trafford.

Vitinha played for Wolves on loan in 2020/21 but failed to impress for the Molineux club, scoring once in 22 appearances.

He impressed for Porto after returning last summer, however, featuring 47 times across all competitions as he helped his side win the Portuguese league title.

Earlier this week, A Bola reported that Manchester United were leading the race to sign the 22-year-old, with Arsenal also believed to be interested.

However, the Gunners are on the verge of confirming a deal to sign Porto’s Fabio Vieira for £34m, meaning they are no longer interested in Vitinha if they ever were.

In what is already proving to be a difficult first summer in charge of the Red Devils, Ten Hag is set to miss out on Vitinha, who will join French champions PSG.

This is according to renowned transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, who reported on Friday that the young Portuguese playmaker has agreed personal terms with the Parisiens, before confirming that he would sign for €40m.

Romano wrote on Twitter: “Paris Saint-Germain are set to sign Vitinha from Porto, here we go! The official proposal worth €40m has been accepted after personal terms agreed today.

“PSG and Porto are now preparing paperworks. He’s gonna be the first signing of Luís Campos, his real priority.”

Meanwhile, ex-Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has claimed that players would “rather sign for Tottenham than Man United”.

O’Hara said on talkSPORT: “Because we got fourth place, because we’ve got Antonio Conte as a manager and because we’ve got Son and Kane and world class players, players now look at it and would rather sign for Tottenham than Man United.

“You would. The facilities are great, you’re in London so why would you sign for Manchester United right now? You’d rather sign for Tottenham.”
