Man Utd in talks to sign “fantastic” £60m play breaker – Report

Palhinha and Ronaldo for Portugal

Manchester United have serious concerns at the back, they need to reinforce the defense and must also sign a top play breaker in the midfield.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man Utd are in talks to sign Joao Palhinha, who has been brilliant for Fulham in the Premier League.

Transfer: Man Utd determined to agree dream signing of £305,000 a week star – Report

According to TEAMtalk, the Red Devils have held discussions with the representative of the player, who is also on the radar of Arsenal and Liverpool.

The 28-year-old defensive midfielder was close to joining Bayern Munich in the summer for £60m and the price tag has not changed.

Former Premier League player and current pundit, Robbie Savage, is a huge fan of Palhinha and speaking on BBC Radio 5, he stated:

“He’s a very good player. He (Palhinha) was going to Bayern and the move fell through. Fantastic player.”

Last year, the Red Devils broke the bank to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid and the Brazil captain helped us earn a place in the Champions League.

However, the veteran South American is past his prime and this season, he has spent majority of the time on the treatment table.

This year, Man Utd completed the loan signing of Sofyan Amrabat, who was arguably the best holding midfielder at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Unfortunately, even the Moroccan play breaker has not been able to help United, who have consistently leaked goals in the current campaign.

In such a scenario, should Man Utd pay £60m to sign Joao Palhinha?
