Manchester United are being linked with a move for Portugual star Joao Moutinho, after reportedly cooling their interests in Tottenham Hotspur's Luka Modric.
According to ESPN Soccernet, United are interested in bringing Moutinho to Old Trafford following his impressive displays at Euro 2012 for the Portuguese national team.
The creative midfielder was an ever-present in the side throughout the group stages and knockout games, ultimately missing a penalty in the semi-final shootout against Spain.
Manchester United have been told that the Porto star will be available for around £25 million, a fee significantly less than the reported £40 million it will cost to land Modric.
Moutinho was linked with a move to United during his says at Sporting Lisbon, but the 25 year-old opted to join Porto in an £8 million deal.
He has since established himself at the Super Liga champions, and made 28 league appearances last season.
Should United land Moutinho, he will be following in the footsteps of Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, Anderson and Bebe, all of whom traded in life in Portugal for Old Trafford.
His signing would be the second major acquisition for Manchester United this summer, following he arrival of Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund.
