English league champions Manchester United have reportedly prepared a deal to sign Venezuelan youngster Roberto Carlos Brito Rojas, who has shown considerable talent; enough for the Premier League club to tag him the new Ronaldo.

According to reports from South America, United coaches David Hudgell and Massimo Pauri have been impressed by the teenage striker during his trial and are now preparing to send him to American Major League Soccer club Dallas Texans, which is a feeder club for United. The 18-year-old striker will train with the Americans for a year before leaving for Old Trafford and joining the Red Devils' youth team.

Meanwhile, in other developments, United are apparently set to lose young French midfielder Paul Pogba, who has refused to sign a new contract with the club. United's manager, Sir Alex Ferguson is understood to be reluctant to lose the talented midfielder and will open talks with him in January.

Pogba had previously interested Arsenal, according to a Givemefootball.com report.
