Transfer Talk: Manchester United To Pay £88m To Sign Brazilian Ace
Man United and Wolves have purportedly been informed that they should pay the £88m release clause for Benfica star Carlos Vinicius to prise him away.
The 25-year-old is having a remarkable season this year, as he has stowed 20 goals and 12 assists in 36 appearances for the Portuguese giants following his move from Napoli the previous summer.
Thus, that form has apparently sparked the enthusiasm of Man United and Wolves, in spite of the fact that the Mirror report that Benfica have told them that their star man won’t leave for anything short of his €100m (£88m) release clause this summer.
That is a huge amount of cash for a striker who has not yet substantiated himself at the highest level on a consistent basis, and keeping in mind that Wolves could be eager to splash out up to £53m for him, it’s conceivably much greater risk for Man United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t afford to get it wrong.. Spending so much on Vinicius could be a bad business for Man United.
With Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as of now available to him to play at top level and keeping in mind that it is not yet clear what happens with loanee Odion Ighalo, it doesn’t seem to bode well most definitely to spend large on the Brazilian striker.
In light of that, that could be a lift for Wolves if the opposition drops out, in spite of the fact that if they somehow happened to go through that sort of cash, it would also be a huge risk for them too as there would be heavy weight on his shoulders to convey and be the huge star at Molineux given the transfer fee he is apparently prepared to command.
