In March last year, Internacional’s Walter Henrique da Silva was amongst the bunch of young Brazilians being looked at by Manchester United. Back then he was valued at around the £5 million mark. But the 20-year-old suffered a serious knee injury and has only just returned to training after an eight month layoff. After recently losing out on Douglas Costa to Shakhtar Donetsk, United may once again turn their attentions to Walter who has scored five goals for Brazil’s U20s.
The player is currently back with Inter’s B team and hit the net at the weekend against minnows Ypiranga. But the forward could rejoin Inter’s senior side within the month and be put into the squad for the Libertadores.
Name: Walter Henrique da Silva
