The 18-year-old Palmeiras forward has been tipped for big things and has been labelled a better prospect than Neymar.

And Brazilian newspaper O Estado de Sao Paulo claims United and Spanish side Atletico Madrid have made a bid for the player.

The report states that Jesus has a £23.5m release clause but United are one of five clubs which are able to sign him for a reduced price of £18.8m.
