Man United make contact to secure signing of £51.7million playmaker – Report

Pedro Goncalvez - Pote - Sporting CP

Manchester United need to improve their attack and reports indicate that they are in contact to secure the signing of Pedro Goncalves from Sporting CP.

Few months ago, Record reported that the Red Devils are interested in signing the Portuguese attacker and the only way to get his signing done is by meeting the release clause of 60 million euros (£51.7million).

More recently, the renowned Portuguese outlet have reported that Man Utd have made informal contact to sign the 24-year-old star in the summer transfer window.

Record claim that the newly crowned Primeira Liga champions do not want to lose their prized asset, who has been in world class form for them this season.

It is mentioned that Sporting are ready to hand him a bumper pay rise and also want to increase the release clause by 20 million euros.

Pedro Goncalves has helped the team win the Allianz Cup and more importantly, the Liga Nos title that the Lions have won after almost two decades. He is the joint top goal scorer (Primeira Liga – 20 goals) and can take the lead when Sporting face Maritimo in the final game of the season tonight.

In your view, should Man Utd move to sign the £51.7million playmaker? I do not think so. The ex Wolverhampton Wanderers star mainly plays in the hole behind the striker and that position is occupied by Bruno Fernandes at Old Trafford.

The Selecao star moved to the Red Devils last year and since then, he has been the best player at the club and he is irreplaceable. We have already wasted cash on Van de Beek, who has warmed the bench this term, and there is no need to waste more funds on a No.10.

Instead, Ole needs a specialist right-winger to strengthen the offense and once again, the name of Jadon Sancho is in the lime light.
