VIDEO: Manchester United target Cavaleiro scores for Portugal u-21s

Benfica

Manchester United linked Ivan Cavaleiro has continued his prolific form.

Manchester United are regularly linked with signing players from Portugal's Primeira Liga, and who can blame them after the success they once enjoyed with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The latest name to be linked from Portugal to Old Trafford was just last week, young prospect Ivan Cavaleiro.

Cavaleiro is yet to make a first team appearance for Benfica, but has been prolific for their B side, netting seven goals in 10 games this season.

He is tipped to break into the first team shortly alongside the likes of Nicolas Gaitan and Lazar Markovic on the wings.

The 19-year-old added to his CV on Wednesday with his fifth goal in four games for Portugal's under-21 side. It came in a 2-0 win away to Azerbaijan in the second half.

Check it out below, skip to 0:50 for Cavaleiro's goal.
