“Its been confirmed that the rumours are true. He is Erik ten Hag first transfer target in January due to injuries”-Manchester United next signing has ‘leaked’, with big-name star to be sold in return to sign the Portuguese Star-REPORT.

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their side as soon as possible, with new investment arriving shortly

Manchester United are poised to bring in a sought-after superstar after their plans to buy the player were leaked. The Red Devils are enduring a tough season with form and injuries – though a win at the weekend at home to Luton Town has left them as the most in-form side in the Premier League at current. Still, Erik ten Hag would like to improve his side, with incoming investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe happy to oblige. INEOS billionaire Ratcliffe is set to assume control of the footballing side of the operation and has identified that Manchester United are in dire need of defensive reinforcement.

Now, Correio da Manha in Portugal has claimed that United’s payment plan for Sporting centre-back Goncalo Inacio has leaked, with the 20-time league champions keen to structure a deal with incentives.

United struggled to complete transfers in the summer with financial restrictions weighing heavy on them, following years of big spending. While they were able to complete the big-money signings of Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund, Sofyan Amrabat had to be signed on loan to comply with Financial Fair Play.

With this deal for Inacio, United are hoping to pay a base fee of €45 million (£39.3m) fee, with €15m (£13.1m) in bonuses and add-ons. Raphael Varane could be sold in order to fund the move.

United have also been linked with Jean-Clair Todibo of Ratcliffe’s Nice.Inacio is valued at €30m by Transfermarkt.
