Approach made: “Underrated” star is now eyeing a move to Man United

Posted by

After speaking with his agent, Goncalo Inacio’s chances of joining Manchester United were deemed to be “becoming likely” in Portugal.

Despite a successful season, it is obvious that more investment is required for the team Erik ten Hag has improved as the summer transfer window approaches.

What has changed since Goncalo Inacio signed with Manchester United?
A move to Manchester United “appeals to the player,” according to a report from Portuguese outlet O Jogo, which was distributed via Sport Wtiness.

United has already contacted Inacio’s agent after setting up a meeting with Miguel Pinho.

Sporting intended to extend his agreement in order to raise his release clause to roughly €60 million (£53 million). Keeping the player is more important than trying to increase the value of a potential exit.

Inacio, who is only 21 years old, has a bright future ahead of him and is seen as Harry Maguire’s replacement despite being United’s third most expensive signing ever.

O Jogo claims that a transfer to the Premier League club is “becoming likely” and that a move to Old Trafford “appeals to the player.”

Is Inacio the player the United need to buy?
In summary, yes. Ten Hag has unquestionably performed admirably in comparison to his forebears, but much work remains.

Although his “underrated” status might change with a move to the Premier League, he could quietly enter the United setup and immediately improve the calibre.

The loss to Brighton encapsulated United’s long-term problems. They still lack a midfield that can outperform the Seagulls and the depth and calibre of defence needed to advance from being potential top-four contenders to real title contenders.

The available options are insufficient in light of the injuries to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane. Inacio, who would take the place of Maguire and compete with Martinez at center-back, would immediately make that position a strong one for United.

The 21-year-old is a fighter who also exhibits remarkable composure under pressure. Most of his advantages relate to problems United is currently facing and that he could resolve.

Inacio is an aggressive player, but he never chases defenders carelessly. Consider Ruben Dias as opposed to Cristian Romero.

The young defender’s excellent distribution is what makes it most exciting. Inacio’s passing efficiency ranks in the 92nd percentile according to Fbref, and in a ten Hag side, effective passing is essential.
