Manchester United are looking to strengthen their midfield and the latest name in the lime light is that of Ederson Dos Santos.
According to Sport, the Red Devils are in a position to submit a first transfer offer to sign the 24-year-old Brazilian star.
The Catalan news outlet have mentioned that Barcelona are also interested in luring the South American player from Atalanta.
His current contract with the Serie A club will expire in the summer of 2026 and he is valued at over £34.5million (40 million euros).
Sport claim Man Utd’s priority is to improve things in the center of the park this month and the first one in the spotlight is Ederson.
It is stated that so far, there has been no talks between the clubs but soon Man Utd will submit a solid initial bid to sign Ederson.
The former Corinthians midfielder is a versatile talent, who can effectively be deployed in the No.6 and the No.8 roles.
In the current campaign, so far, he has started 17 games in the Serie A under the management of Gasperini and directly contributed in 5 goals (4 goals and 1 assist).
At Old Trafford, Ten Hag lacks quality and depth in the center of the park and since the summer signings have not improved the team, he needs to splash the cash to reinforce the department in the winter.
In your view, should Man Utd bid over £34.5million to sign Ederson dos Santos?
