Surprise as Manchester United thrown in race to sign Brazilian striker – Club only want €15m for star player

Posted by

Today, Manchester United is unexpectedly thrust into the battle to sign Marcos Leonardo, a center-forward for Santos.

The player’s situation has received extensive coverage in the Italian media as he is rumoured to be close to joining AS Roma.

For this reason, CalcioMercato.A short story in it asserts that the Giallorossi are still pursuing Santos and are engaged in a “hot negotiation.”

The outlet continues by naming Manchester United as one of the teams attempting to sign the player to a Premier League contract.

Santos is reportedly only asking for €15 million, which doesn’t seem like a bad price for any of the clubs who are interested in signing him.

And it’s said that Marcos Leonardo wants to move to Roma despite interest from the Premier League.

It’s interesting to see that Manchester United has now entered the fray after only Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest were reportedly vying for the signing earlier today, according to reports from Italy.

Although the striker has attracted significant interest from Europe, particularly after scoring five goals in five games at the U-20 World Cup this year, this is the first time the Red Devils have been mentioned in connection with him.
