Manchester United are going backwards this season, performances have been average and things at Old Trafford are in a turmoil.
The Red Devils are currently 10th in the Premier League and after suffering yet another defeat last night, they remain bottom of their Champions League group.
Erik ten Hag needs to improve key departments and primarily, he must sort out the defensive conundrum.
Once again, the name of Goncalo Inacio is in the focus. The 20-time English champions have been interested in the Portuguese international for some time and even in the last summer transfer window.
However, the 22-year-old center back ended up signing a new deal with the Lions that has a release clause of £52m (60 million euros).
With Lisandro Martinez out injured, reports indicate Man Utd are stepping up efforts to finally sign Inacio in the January transfer window.
According to The Sun, United scouts are consistently monitoring the defender, who has won multiple major domestic titles with Sporting CP.
The famous British media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd are prepared to agree the £52m fee required to activate the release clause to sign Inacio.
The Lisbon side are currently on top of the Liga Nos table with the best defensive record and the Seleccao star has started all seven games.
In your view, should Man Utd pay £52m fee to finally sign Goncalo Inacio in January?
