Video: Man Utd and Chelsea target Carlos Mane scores a stunning solo goal for Portugal U21
Sporting Lisbon’s Carlos Mane was regularly scouted by Europe’s big boys last season – and it is easy to see why on the evidence of his goal for Portugal Under-21s last night.
The 20-year-old winger scored a sensational solo goal during his nation’s European Championship playoff against the Netherlands last night.
Mane, reportedly wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea, went on a jinking run through the Dutch defence and delivered an ice-cool finish one he had got himself into the penalty area.
Given his club and his position, Mane is often touted as the next Cristiano Ronaldo or the next Nani.
As United and the Blues probably know only too well, the youngster is under contract with Sporting until 2018 and his contract includes €45m buy-out clause.
