Manchester United need to improve their striking department in the summer transfer window and the latest name in the lime light is that of Carlos Vinicius.
According to A Bola, Man Utd are ready to make a concrete offer to sign the Brazilian center forward, who is also wanted by other Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Wolves.
The renowned Portuguese outlet have mentioned that signing the South American striker is not going to be easy because he has got a mammoth release clause of 100 million euros (£87million) in his contract. Furthermore, the Primeira Liga club do not want to sell their prized asset.
As far as the bid is concerned, two days back TodoFichajes revealed that the Red Devils are in advanced talks to sign Vinicius and would be prepared to offer 40 million euros.
This is his debut campaign with The Eagles and already, he is proving to be a major hit. Before the football came to a halt in March, the 25-year-old striker played 36 games for the Liga Nos club and directly contributed in no fewer than 32 goals (20 goals and 12 assists).
The former Ligue 1 forward has not played for the senior national side as yet but if he maintains top form then it will not be surprising to see him make his debut for the Selecao soon.
As pointed out several times on this site, Man United have not properly reinforced their strike-force since the departure of Romelu Lukaku in the summer transfer window of last year.
The Old Trafford outfit’s goal-scoring record this term has been worse than the last campaign and Solskjaer badly needs a proven quality finisher for next season.
In your view, should the Norwegian boss splash the cash to sign Carlos Vinicius?
