Liverpool is closing in on a Portuguese defender linked to Manchester United for €60 million……….

Goncalo Inacio, a Portugal international, is one name that both Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly linked to for their center back needs in 2024.

The Sporting Lisbon defender has naturally slipped our notice in recent months as he is rumored to be being pursued by several European teams, including United.

The 22-year-old Inacio, who came via Sporting’s youth, is a vital member of the Portugal national team this season. He begins at Roberto Martinez’s side next to Ruben Dias of Man City.

Liverpool is reportedly nearing an agreement to sign the Sporting star, according to recent sources.

Spanish publication Nacional claims that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is getting close to signing Inacio, with the Merseyside club leading Real Madrid and Barcelona in the chase for his services.

According to O Jogo in Portugal, Inacio has a €60 million (£52.5 million) release clause that needs to be fulfilled in order for him to leave the team. It’s been reported that Liverpool is prepared to provide the young defender a starting position in Klopp’s squad in addition to matching the buyout clause.

According to the article, Madrid is unable to give Inacio a starting position in their squad just yet, while Barcelona lacks the financial resources to contend with Premier League teams.

Due to United’s defense-related injury issues this season, Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have been able to reclaim their spots in the starting lineup. Not even Jonny Evans, 35, who rejoined the team in the summer, anticipated that he would play so many games this season.

Do you think United should try to sign Inacio for £52.5 million? Even though I can only assume there will be less expensive options, that sounds like a lot of money.
