The famous Spanish outlet have mentioned that Man United have already moved at the backstage to gain advantage over rivals to sign the teenage sensation from the Brazilian club.
It is stated that the South American winger’s current contract will expire in 2025 and it has a huge release clause of 60 million euros (£53million). However, his current market value is at around 20 million euros.
This term, Veron started 5 games in the prestigious Copa Libertadoes tournament and directly contributed in 4 goals (3 goals and 1 assists). Palmeiras will face Santos in the final of the competition on January 30, 2021.
As far as the league is concerned, so far, in 17 appearances (7 starts), the Brazilian winger has scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists.
In 2019, Veron was a key member of the U-17 Brazilian side that won the World Cup at home. He featured in all 7 games and directly contributed in 6 goals. In the semi finals, Brazil were 2-0 down against France and the Veron scored the equalizing goal in the second half.
On the other hand, in the final against Mexico, he provided the decisive assist to help his nation win the crown.
Manchester United do need an upgrade in the RW role because the likes of Greenwood and James have not been good enough. In your view, who should Solskjaer sign to strengthen the position at Old Trafford?
