Manchester United were able to defeat newly promoted Luton Town 1-0 at Old Trafford but the overall performance was once again not up to the mark.
The Red Devils must reinforce their squad in the winter transfer window and the priority should be on strengthening the backline.
As per reports in Portugal, United, Liverpool and Real Madrid are after Sporting CP star, Goncalo Inacio, and will see him in action tonight against Benfica.
If reports in the Spanish media are anything to go by then Man Utd are favorites in the PL to sign the Portuguese international from the Lions.
According to a story covered by AS yesterday (news image provided below), the Old Trafford outfit are searching for a new center back and for Inacio, United are the first option in England.
Real Madrid are leading the race as the 22-year-old defender himself wants to move to the Bernabeu to follow in the footsteps of Portugal legends, Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Inacio’s contract with the Lisbon side has a release clause of 60 million euros (£52.6m) but AS claim Sporting are ready to accept a payment plan involving and initial outlay of 45 million euros and the rest in the form of ‘easily met objectives’.
It is reported that Manchester United are Real Madrid’s strongest rival in the race to lure Inacio in the January transfer window.
In your opinion, should Man Utd activate the release clause to sign the Seleccao star in winter?
