Inacio set for Man Utd move

Manchester United are ready to make an official bid to sign Sporting Lisbon defender Goncalo Inacio, A Bola claims.

The Red Devils are looking for a new central defender this summer, and the onus could be on pursuing a young player with potential.

They have been keeping tabs on Inacio for the past few months, and A Bola reports that the club are now prepared to make a formal transfer offer.

Inacio's contract has a release clause worth €45 million, but the Red Devils are prepared to pay €40 million up front with the remaining in add-ons.

They are expected to make an official bid in the coming days knowing that there could be more high-profile interest in the near future.

Inacio is a left-footed centre-back. He has impressed with his distribution, tackling and concentration. He has a bright future ahead.

Newcastle are also interested in him, having failed with a January bid, but they are unlikely to offer much competition to United.
