Last year, Manchester United were heavily linked with Goncalo Inacio and were in pole position to hire his services from Sporting CP (JN).
However, the player ended up staying in Portugal and the Red Devils moved in to lure Lisandro Martinez to reinforce the central defense.

The Portuguese international is once again in the focus and reports suggest that Man Utd could submit a bid to finally sign him.
According to a recent story covered by Record, Inacio’s current deal has a low release clause of 45 million euros (£39.5million).
The Lions want the central defender to pen a new deal involving a raised exit clause of 80 million euros, however, Inacio does not want it to be above 70 million euros.
His current contract with Sporting CP will expire in 2026 and the news source claim that United can take advantage of the contract impasse.
It is reported that Man Utd may submit a proposal ‘at any moment’ to sign the 21-year-old from the Liga Nos side.
The youngster has already won four domestic trophies with the Jose Alvalade outfit and in March, he made his senior international debut in the 4-0 win over Liechtenstein.
The Old Trafford outfit must let Harry Maguire leave in the next transfer window. The England international has mainly warmed the bench this season and does not have the quality to play under Ten Hag.
Martinez and Varane have been solid in the central defense but the duo have proved to be injury prone.
Therefore, a top central defender must be signed in the summer. Do you think Man Utd should activate the £39.5million clause to sign Goncalo Inacio?
