‘On the agenda’: Manchester Utd want to sign €60m star who has same agent as Bruno Fernandes – report.



Manchester United reportedly wants to acquire a €60 million star who is represented by the same agent as Bruno Fernandes.Manchester United continues to consider Sporting Lisbon defender Goncalo Inacio prior to the January transfer window, as reported by Record (page 5).Numerous central defenders were linked to the Red Devils during the summer transfer window, and Inacio was among those cited as a possible acquisition.

Despite the fact that Inacio ultimately agreed to a new contract that included a €60 million release clause, the Red Devils remain among those expected to submit a transfer offer.


According to a report in Today, Liverpool scouts observed Inacio during the middle of last week, and they are expected to increase their pursuit of acquiring him by the beginning of the new year.They note, however, that United remains interested in the Portugal international and that an approach for him cannot be ruled out.


The speculation of Inacio might be agent-driven.

United has been linked to the center-back for a considerable amount of time. The club first became aware of him the year prior to its acquisition of Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.


Last summer, the Portuguese was once more mentioned as a potential acquisition, but United refrained from making an approach prior to his agreement with Sporting for a new, long-term contract.


Agents may have been behind the speculation, in our opinion, in order to generate high-profile interest in him.


United captain Bruno Fernandes and Inacio’s representative Miguel Pinho may be attempting to persuade United to pursue the center-back.


Although Inacio is without a doubt a defender of the highest caliber, it is evident that United have other objectives in sight. Nice actor Jean-Clair Todibo seems to be the Red Devils’ primary target.


In addition to Todibo, United are reportedly monitoring the development of Antonio Silva of Benfica with great interest.
