There is something in the game of a Brazilian attacker that has dazzled football fans for years. If there is something these South Americans know, it is how to enjoy the game and make it worth watching. Their quick feet, shoulder feints and a touch for the fancy has seen them equipped with enough ammunition to raise a jam-packed stadium to its feet.

One such Brazilian player who has come to the limelight this season is Ajax sensation David Neres. The highly rated 20-year old player from South America has brilliantly adapted to Dutch football. As is always the case with South Amaericans coming to Europe, there was a slight sense of skepticism around the move. There has been many a talented Brazilian who has sailed across the Atlantic only to find that the European style of football is not for them.

The rise of modern day footballers has seen players short in stature with low centre of gravity and a knack to run straight at defenders or craftily slide through killer passes come to the foray. These players are in sharp contrast to the old bulky players of yesteryears in the game. Neres is incredibly light on his feet and has good enough ball control to cause any defence problems on his night.

The winger has been in blazing form this season and has already scored 9 goals and recorded 12 assists in 22 games. He has been one of the star performers for Ajax this season and his excellent form has attracted the attention of the big boys of England. It is being reported that Mauricio Pochettino Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho are all interested in signing the talented winger.

As for Mourinho’s Manchester United, the Red Devils have already spent over a 150 million pounds this season in recruiting new talent. They were however still shy of one player and the team from the red half of Manchester were in the market for a winger over the sumer. Having another talented and promising winger next to the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the league which Mourinho knows inside out will propose a daunting prospect for the opposition.

Neres will complete the team consisting the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba and it would be dream come true for United fans to see a team of such raw pace, guile and power, rain in goals at Old Trafford.
