Manchester United interested in Portuguese star David Carmo

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United are among the clubs interested in SC Braga defender David Carmo.

The Red Devils failed in their pursuit of a number of key players in the summer. We did manage to salvage the window to a degree by signing Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles on deadline day.

One of the players we missed out on was Brazilian defender Gabriel Magalhaes. The 22-year-old chose to move to Arsenal. (h/t Daily Star)

Manchester United are interested in David Carmo

United have been open at the back this season. We have so far conceded 14 goals in our first seven Premier League games.

While Maguire appears to be improving, the subject of his partner is an open question. This could see us make a move for Carmo this January. (h/t Daily Star)

The youngster is not short of suitors and was subject to interest from Roma and Fiorentina in the summer. Despite staying put, he is attracting attention from across Europe. (h/t Daily Star)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign a left sided center-back and Carmo is a viable option. However, with the likes of Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo all still at the club, we will need to sell before we buy. (h/t Daily Star)

The club are ready to listen to offers for both Rojo and Jones. It remains to be seen if we can reach an agreement for either of them. (h/t Daily Star)

Carmo has made some sensational displays at both the club and international levels. He was part of the Portugal Under-19 side that won the U19 European Championship in 2018.

Braga have started the campaign brilliantly, sitting second in the Primeira Liga, behind Sporting Lisbon. United failed to bring in who Solskjaer wanted in the summer, and it remains to be seen if we do so in January.
