GETTYBruno Amorim will soon link up with Nicky Butt's Under-23s
Manchester United will reportedly complete their fourth capture of the transfer window by signing Bruno Amorim.
The striker is set to join United's academy squad.
"He had been promoted to the main squad but [United's] scout was alert and chose to take him there", Oliveirense's communications director Antonio Jose Leite told Agencia Lusa via Portugese newspaper Noticias ao Minuto. And, with just four appearances under his belt, the player could be on his way to Old Trafford. He's now on trial at the club.
Manchester United's nearly obsessive scouting of Portugal has seen them get there first, and in Portugal it's expected Bruno Amorim will soon be a Manchester United player.
While talking to Agencia Lusa, Leite said: "He (Amorim) had been promoted to the main squad but the scouting was already alert and made a decision to take him there".

Manchester United are on the verge of signing 19-year-old Portuguese winger Bruno Amorim from Portuguese side Oliveirense.
The Red Devils have invested heavily in youth over the summer, adding the likes of Largie Ramazani and Aliou Badara Traore to their ranks.
"At this time the business is 50 per cent done and he can have an excellent contract ahead". These details are not yet defined.
Although Manchester United are only expected to pay Oliveirense a fee for training rights, the deal is seen well in Portugal, especially because it's expected the partnership could provide a good interchange relation between the two clubs. However, the squad seems to be taking shape now, with a manager finally in place, following the return of Ricky Sbragia.
