ABC – Man United keen on signing £44.2million playmaker

Luiz Henrique

Manchester United are linked with Brazilian playmaker, Luiz Henrique, for some time and the latest reports coming from Spain are intriguing.

As per today’s version of ABC (news image provided below), the 22-year-old South American could end up leaving Real Betis this month as PL clubs are keen on hiring his services.

The Spanish media outlet mention that Man United have already sent scouts to observe the performances of the youngster, who is also on the radar of Aston Villa and Premier League leaders, Arsenal.

Henrique’s current deal with the La Liga club will expire in 2028 and ABC claim it has a release clause of 100 million euros.

Yesterday, Mundo Deportivo reported that Man Utd are closely following the player and even watched him play last weekend against Espanyol.

The Catalan news source have revealed Betis would seriously consider selling the player if they receive an offer of around £44.2million (50 million euros).

The former Fluminense attacker directly contributed in 12 goals for the Brazilian Serie A side last season and moved to Spain in the summer transfer window.

Henrique is naturally a right winger but he can play on the left flank and also in the No.10 role if needed. In the current campaign, so far, he has started 17 games for the Spanish side, scored 3 goals and provided 5 assists.

In the summer of 2021, Man Utd splashed a lot of cash to sign Jadon Sancho from Dortmund but the England international has been highly inconsistent.

Moreover, last summer, Ten Hag opted to break the bank for Antony, and the right winger has not even provided a single assist since completing his move to Old Trafford from Ajax.

In such a scenario, should Man Utd offer £44.2million to sign Luiz Henrique before the transfer deadline ends next week?
