Man Utd interested in signing fantastic €140m duo, watching them closely

Posted by

Manchester United is among the teams keeping an eye on Ousmande Diomande and Goncalo Inacio of Sporting Lisbon, who are expected to go this summer.

The outstanding league season that Sporting has had is mostly due to the central defenders. At the top of the standings, the team is now one point ahead of Benfica.

According to Record, the team is reportedly searching for a new centre back this summer, with Diomande and Inacio both probably heading out the door.

Release clauses in the contracts of Diomande and Inacio presently stand at €80 million and €60 million, respectively.

The Red Devils are among the teams that have been “in and out” of Sporting games to track the development of the highly-regarded defence tandem, according to the record.

Diomande should be the first player United signs.

This summer, the team is probably going to spend money on at least one central defender. Raphael Varane’s contract expires on June 30, thus he might leave on a free transfer.

The management has chosen not to activate the extension provision in his contract, and a renewal doesn’t seem imminent unless he agrees to take a large pay drop.

His departure might provide room for someone else. We believe that Diomande would be a fantastic addition because he is a robust, ball-playing defender who enjoys taking on challenges.

The 20-year-old centre back plays on the right side. His accuracy rate during his term is 91%. The Ivorian has won 64% of his duels and 1.5 tackles per game.

Diomande has demonstrated strength in the air, winning 72% of his aerial contests. Additionally, he has averaged 5.7 ball recoveries each game. He has what it takes to be a top player.

We think he would be a better investment than left-footed Inacio, who might only be considered a backup, given that Lisandro Martinez is a clear starter when healthy.

Additionally, Inacio is less proficient in tackles and the air. For United, Diomande is unquestionably a stronger option.
