Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly eyeing up a move for the Brazilian attacking midfielder Lorran.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the two English clubs have sent scouts to track the Brazilian midfielder recently and it remains to be seen whether they decide to come forward with a concrete proposal for him in the coming months.
The 17-year-old attacking midfielder reportedly has a €50 million release clause in his contract with Flamengo.
It is fair to assume that the Brazilian club will not want to lose him on a bargain and therefore they are likely to demand his release clause to be paid in full.
The 17-year-old is highly rated in South America and he has a big future ahead of him. He could develop into a key player for Manchester United or Chelsea in the coming seasons.
The opportunity to join one of the biggest clubs in the world will be how to turn down for the 17-year-old and he will be attracted to the idea of playing at Old Trafford or Stamford Bridge.
