Manchester United have been interested in Goncalo Inacio for quite some time and the latest reports going on in the media are interesting.
Back in May, Mirror Sport revealed that the Red Devils will have the first option to hire the services of the Sporting CP center half.
Moreover, last month, Correio da Manha reported that the Old Trafford outfit is at the head of the queue to secure the 20-year-old defender.
Today, as per the famous Portuguese news source (news image provided below), the Lions fear they might lose their star defender this summer as top clubs are bidding to sign him.
CM Jornal claim the Liga Nos giants have already rejected a bid worth 33 million euros from Newcastle United. Now, PSG are preparing an offer of 30 million euros and that will likely be turned down as well.
It is stated that the likes of Man Utd and Barcelona are still trying to sign the youngster and Sporting have made it clear that an offer of 45 million euros (£38.3million release clause) will be needed to finally seal the signing.
Inacio was an important member of the Lisbon-based side when they won the Primeira Liga title in the 2020-21 campaign. Even last season, he formed a rock-solid central defensive partnership with former Liverpool player, Sebastian Coates.
The Selecao starlet featured in 28 league games and helped the team keep no fewer than 14 clean sheets. Manager, Ruben Amorim, is seriously worried about the possibility of losing his key defender this summer (Correio da Manha).
Man Utd are already close to signing a top center half in the form of Marintez. Should they also offer £38.3million to lure Goncalo Inacio?
