English Premier League club Man United are leaving no chance on the signature of Sporting Lisbon youngster Luis Gomes as they have agreed on a first refusal deal with the Portuguese outfit.

The 16-year-old has been tipped to be the next Luis Figo as he has shown the prospect of making it big in his football caterer. He only signed his first contract earlier this month but he is already attracting interest in Europe.

It is understood that the Portuguese outfit handed Luis Gomes a 5-year deal against the custom but that also shows that the club have got faith in him and are convinced about his talent.

The agreement reached between Sporting Lisbon and Man United is that of first refusal should the Portuguese outfit decide to sell him in the future.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils have agreed on a fee of £14 million for Luis Gomes and that has further revealed the faith the Red Devils have in young players.

It would be recalled that the Red Devils invested £10 million in the signature of Hannibal Mejbri from Monaco and £36 million for Amad Diallo from Atlanta. £10 million was also invested to secure the service of Facundo Pellistri.
