Man United advance on a deal to sign £50M Star with the same Agent as Bruno Fernandes



Man United advance on a deal to sign £50M Star with the same Agent as Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United are interested in Sporting Lisbon’s Goncalo Inacio after impressive performances.

Man United is getting ready to move up for Inacio in an effort to address their center-back issues before Varane leaves.

Morten Hjulmand’s performance for Denmark against England on Thursday afternoon will have inspired Manchester United, as the Red Devils target scored a long-range goal to earn a draw against the Three Lions.

But in addition to becoming more interested in the midfield player, the team has reportedly become more interested in Goncalo Inacio, his teammate at Sporting Lisbon, with the Old Trafford team ‘willing to advance’ for the £50 million Portugal star.

Since it was revealed that Raphael Varane would be departing the team following a three-year stint in the north west, United has been looking for a center-back.

Inacio is one of them, and after a stellar season with Sporting in which they won the Portuguese top-flight, he has seen interest in his services spike from teams across Europe.

Man United will need to make a move quickly and a report by Portuguese outlet A Bola suggests that United are preparing to advance for both Inacio and Hjulmand.

The report states that Hjulmand has been on United’s radar for a long period of time, and after his long-range goal against England in Frankfurt on Thursday afternoon, the rumours have grown stronger – but their love for Sporting’s stars hasn’t stopped there, with a move for team-mate Inacio also hotting up.

The publication suggests that any club wanting to sign Hjulmand will have to cough up the €80million (£68million) release clause for his services, with the Dane being considered one of the ‘untouchables’ at the Estadio Jose Alvalade with Sporting having ‘no desire’ for negotiations with United over a potential exit.

But Sporting have big plans for the energetic midfielder – with the report suggesting that captaincy of the side from the capital could be a potential move in the future.

And it’s a similar tale with Inacio, who United are also preparing to advance for despite potential future captaincy for the player under Ruben Amorim.

A previous report at the start of the month stated that United were set to present an offer to Sporting for Inacio ‘soon’, as they aim to fix their centre-back woes, especially with Varane set to depart the club in the coming days.

Man United have been following Inacio for a while, and the report stated that they would ‘really advance’ for his signing heading into the transfer window.

Inacio has the same agent as Bruno Fernandes, who made the journey from Sporting to United four-and-a-half-years ago, and that could play a huge part in proceedings if Sir Jim Ratcliffe proceeds to make the same move.

United are the most desperate for a centre-back out of the trio having suffered injury woes throughout their backline last summer, and perhaps need two centre-backs to join Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire and Willy Kambwala at the heart of the defence, though Inacio’s signing would be a first-choice to go alongside the Argentine
