Transfer Gist: Man Utd Keen To Sign Benfica star, Carlos Vinicius



Manchester United are in keen interest to buy  Benfica star Carlos Vinicius who has  £88m release clause

The 25-year-old is having quite the season this year, as he has bagged 20 goals and 12 assists in 36 appearances for the Portuguese giants following his move from Napoli last summer.

In turn, that form has seemingly sparked the interest of United and Wolves, although reports claim that Benfica have informed them that their star man will not leave for anything less than his €100m (£88m) release clause this summer.

That is a hefty amount of money for a striker who has not yet proven himself at the highest level on a consistent basis, and while it’s added that Wolves could be willing to splash out up to £53m for him, it’s arguably an even bigger risk for Man Utd as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can’t afford to get it wrong if he were to use up a significant portion of his transfer budget on Vinicius.
