Erik ten Hag’s team has just experienced two consecutive 0-3 defeats at Old Trafford against Man City and Newcastle United. Those were matches that highlighted Man United’s defensive weakness. They were unfortunate to lose many pillars in defense due to injury, such as Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia or Raphael Varane.
The Red Devils are looking for a centre-back, and have targeted Goncalo Inacio. Speaking on his personal YouTube channel, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said Man Utd is “considering the conditions” to get Inacio, facing competition from Real Madrid, Liverpool and Newcastle United.
The Italian journalist said: “What I can tell you is that at the moment, Real Madrid has not agreed anything with Sporting about Goncalo Inacio. There is no agreement, not even a conversation.” Any specific decisions at this stage?
Nothing has been done and nothing is guaranteed for the January transfer window. For now, the situation is quiet, finding a very talented player is just business as usual.
Remember what I told you a month ago about Goncalo Inacio. He has been on the watch list of many English clubs for a long time including Newcastle, including Liverpool. Man United is also exploring this player’s conditions. Right now it’s just a preview, nothing concrete yet. The reality is that there is a 60 million euro release clause in his contract.”
