Man United or Arsenal set to sign Benfica starlet
Manchester United and Arsenal are set to battle it out for Benfica starlet as both look to make a splash in the January window.
The pair, as well as PSG, are set for battle over 20-year-old Gonçalo Guedes who could leave the Portugese giants as early as Monday.
According to Record earlier in the week, the player was set to join Manchester United but other names have now been thrown into the fray, with the Gunners looking to pip them to the post.

Recent reports from O Jogo suggest that both PSG and Arsenal are in the running, so who will come away with their target come the end of the transfer window in just nine days time?
The player has been at Benfica for the past 10 years and was left out of Benfica’s squad on Sunday as he prepares to bid farewell to his club.
The 20-year-old is a winger and would provide an apt replacement for Memphis Depay who departed for Lyon last week.
