Manchester United are interested in numerous midfielders but there is one man they have tracked for a very long time.
The player in discussion is Sporting Lisbon’s midfielder William Carvalho.
The Red Devils have scouted the highly rated star no less than 12 times and really want to lure him to Old Trafford for next season.
United’s midfield has been the worst in years this season under the management of Moyes and that is one department the English giants must reinforce next summer.
The good news for Man United fans is that Carvalho has himself admitted that he may join Manchester United next summer.
Carvalho has a release clause of no less than €45m in his contract. He claimed:
“It could be Manchester United or Real Madrid. It’s just nice to have a great European club after me, but at the moment I’m just totally focused on Sporting and doing my best until the end of the season.”
“At the end of the campaign, we will see what happens.”
The main problem for Manchester United is that Spanish giants Real Madrid are in the running as well.
Moreover, in current circumstances, United might not be playing CL football next season and if that happens, Carvalho might be more tempted to join Los Blancos.
