Man Utd conceded seven goals at Anfield last season but earned a hard fought 0-0 draw last night that will boost their confidence.
The Red Devils bravely defended for the entire game and frustrated the Merseysiders, whose perfect record at home in the Premier League came to an end.
Nevertheless, the Old Trafford outfit still have a negative goal difference and have been highly inconsistent at the back and therefore, a top center half must be signed in January.
According to a recent report covered by Record (news image provided below), Goncalo Inacio is on the agenda of Manchester United, who are looking to strengthen their backline next month.
The renowned Portuguese media outlet have mentioned that the Seleccao center half is also tracked by Newcastle United and especially Liverpool, who sent their scouts to observe his performance in the midweek Europa League contest.
The three Premier League sides could enter into an auction to lure the 22-year-old star in January.
Record claim Man Utd and other suitors will only be able to secure the signing of Inacio in the winter transfer window if they bid £51.6million to activate the release clause in his contract.
Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are now past their primes, on the other hand, Lisandro Martinez has been injured for a long time.
Hence, the central defense must be reinforced and Goncalo Inacio would be a top signing.
In your view, should Man Utd bid £51.6million to sign the Portuguese defender next month?
