MANCHESTER UNITED- EVANILSON TRANSFER SAGA FULL STORY

According to reports, the Old Trafford club have moved in with an initial offer rising to 65 million euros. The report also states that the Liga Nos champions have turned down the offer. The news source also mentioned that the South American striker has got a release clause of 100 million euros in his contract. But Manchester United does not have any interest in activating it.

Porto is also looking to get around 80 million euros (£68.8million) from his sale. The source also states that United have promised to come back with a new offer. The new bid by Erik Ten Hag’s side is expected to be around the valuation Porto are asking for the striker. However. United is currently focusing on the Frenkie De Jong deal. When the midfielder deal is completed and signed, then United will focus on further signings.

WHY ARE UNITED READY TO SPLASH BIG ON THE PORTO STRIKER?

Evanilson played a key role in helping the Primeira Liga club win a domestic double last season. He also featured in all seven games in the Taca de Portugal and he scored as many goals to win the cup. On the other hand in the league, the forward was in red hot form.

The Brazilian started 25 games in the league and scored 14 goals and provided 4 assists. Even Luiz Diaz had the same statistics by January for Porto, but he moved to Liverpool in the winter transfer window. Seeing his former teammate thrive in Premier League Evanilson will also be keen to test the waters of the Premier League with Manchester United.

Manchester United will be without Edison Cavani next season. Last season, United heavily relied on 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo for goals. Ten Hag is keen to sign a young striker and take the burden of Ronaldo. Ten Hag is looking for a young and quality striker who could serve the club in the years to come. Evanilson looks like the player Manchester United needs as he is young and he has the quality to score goals.
