Manchester:

Manchester United agreed to terms on Wednesday to acquire midfielders Nani and Anderson from their Portuguese clubs.

The deals to sign the players will be finalized after the two complete medical examinations. No transfer fees were disclosed.

Nani, a highly-rated 20-year-old Portuguese, will move from Sporting Lisbon, where he has scored eight goals in 38 appearances.

The skilful winger has been compared to compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, who led Manchester United to the Premier League title last season after moving over from Sporting in 2003.

He has scored once in five appearances for Portugal.

The deal to sign Brazilian attacking midfielder Anderson from FC Porto is dependent on his ability to obtain a work permit.

The 19-year-old has been selected for Brazil's squad for next month's Copa America in Venezuela - his first national team call-up.

"Personal terms have been agreed and a formal announcement will take place once the necessary administrative procedures, including a medical have been completed," United said in separate statements.

The club reportedly also is on the verge of signing Owen Hargreaves from Bayern Munich.
