Accordingly, Manchester United is one of the clubs monitoring Sporting Lisbon duo Ousmane Diomande and Goncalo Inacio. Both of these players are expected to leave this summer.
Sporting Lisbon’s central defenders play an important role this season. That’s why Sporting Lisbon is one point ahead of Benfica at the top of the table.
Currently, Record reports that Sporting Lisbon are looking for a new centre-back in the summer of 2023 with both Diomande and Inacio likely to leave.
The source confirmed that the Red Devils were one of the clubs that sent scouts to watch Sporting’s matches to scout the above duo.
Man Utd will likely invest in at least one midfielder after this season. Raphael Varane can leave on a free transfer when his contract expires in June.
The prices of Diomande and Inacio are not cheap. Both have release clauses worth 80 million euros and 60 million euros in their contracts, respectively.
Notably, Man United failed to make any deals in January 2024 due to Financial Fairness Law issues. However, Correio da Manha suddenly confirmed that Man Utd is ready to sign a contract with Inacio.
Man United is one of the clubs that can activate the 60 million euro clause. In the context of the failed deal in January, the Red Devils could return in the summer of 2023.
