Manchester United reportedly want FC Porto forward Evanilson.
According to Record and corroborated by O Jogo, the Red Devils have submitted a €60m plus variables bid for Evanilson, who Porto would be prepared to sell should PSG’s bid to sign Vitinha fall through.
Newspaper Correio do Manha suggests United have been keeping a close eye on Evanilson for four months, with former interim manager Ralf Rangnick credited for recommending the player.
Of course, the young forward could be used to rotate Cristiano Ronaldo for the upcoming season, but United have showed no signs yet that they will spend excessively to back the new manager.
Evanilson scored 21 goals in all competitions last season but has yet to be called into the Brazil senior squad.
I think United will wait another year to sign a centre-forward, but Ten Hag may get the opportunity to add a right winger to his squad before the new season kicks off.
I’m not going to lie to our readers and claim to know everything about Evanilson. I don’t – but there are forwards on the market available at a better value.
He’s got to cost at least £50m.
Moreover, I highly doubt the club will listen to a lot advice given by Rangnick. This should come down to Erik ten Hag’s preference as he’s the manager.
