Journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that Liverpool are keen on signing Sporting Lisbon centre-back Goncalo Inacio. Moreover, the Reds have been interested in signing the 22-year old player in the recent past. However now, according to Fabrizio Romano’s Daily Briefing, Inacio may soon be on the move. If not to them, then to one of their biggest rivals.

“One final point on United, as I can confirm that Goncalo Inacio is another name on their list of centre-back targets, along with other names I recently told you, such as Edmond Tapsoba and Antonio Silva,” Romano reports.

United are now sending their scouts to Portugal to watch, not just Silva, but also Inacio. Then in the next months they will decide with Ten Hag which player is right for them, and how much they want to spend.”

“Inacio has also been on the list at Liverpool and Newcastle in recent years. Meanwhile Sporting also extended his contract during the summer.

“He’s a very talented player, so let’s see how his situation evolves in the months ahead.”

However, it is unclear from Romano’s reports whether Liverpool are still keen on signing him or just past interest. Given that the Portuguese has only turned 22, one cannot see any reason that it might not be a possible transfer. Moreover, the last centre-back they signed was Ibrahima Konate in 2021. Though we cannot see him as a replacement to him as a long-term investment for defence.

Contrary to this, Manchester United are looking in a more desperate need for a defender. Having seen Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans starting against Brentford, they are in an immediate need of him. If Inacio is available in the market next summer, we may see Liverpool going for him.
