The 22-year-old centre-back joined Porto from Feyenoord this week after enjoying a solid World Cup under new United boss Louis van Gaal.

"He really impressed me in Brazil, especially against Argentina when they were up against it," Robson said.

"He had a really good tournament. He had a big presence on the pitch and we need someone like that."
