Setanta.com are reporting that Liverpool and Manchester United are set to battle it out for Portuguese defender Daniel Carrico.

The 20-year-old Sporting Lisbon defender has received rave reviews for his performances in the Liga Sagres and that has alerted Europe’s top scouts.

The youngster started the season in the Sporting second string, but his efforts saw him promoted to the first team where he has won the Portuguese young player of the month award on two occasions since.

He is contracted to Sporting until 2013 and has a buyout fee of around £13m, but he may be available for less.

He was educated at the famous Academia de Alcochete, where Luis Figo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani learnt their trade.

The youngster has so far refused to comment on speculation, but could be swayed by a move to Old Trafford to link up with Portuguese superstars Ronaldo and Nani.
