Transfer News: Manchester United interested in Everton star Richarlison
According to The Sun, Manchester United are interested in signing Everton star Richarlison on a potential transfer move ahead of the next season. They are keeping tabs on him at this moment as there is a need to bolster their frontline this summer.
According to Daily Mail Online, the Brazilian’s future at Goodison Park is currently in uncertain waters despite playing a key role in helping them survive the relegation battle. This update will be a great piece of news for Man United if they are actively vying to sign him in the future.
The Toffees could also decide to part ways with the 25-year-old to compensate for their poor state of finances. Furthermore, Richarlison could also be sold to raise funds to back Frank Lampard in the summer transfer window. Moreover, the striker is likely to be influenced by the prospect of joining a title challenger, paving the way for a potential exit.
No shortage of competition!
We are desperate for some attacking reinforcements at the end of this season, considering how an exodus awaits us this summer. After all, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani and Juan Mata are in line to leave for free after the current campaign.
Anthony Martial’s future at Old Trafford is also in doubt after failing to impress during his loan spell at Sevilla. Marcus Rashford has been quite poor throughout the last term, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be depended upon moving forward.
Richarlison could be of great help in this situation, although we would need to deal with Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid as they are keen to get their hands on the centre-forward. That could be an issue for us since all three of them are in a better situation than us at this moment.
However, a move to Old Trafford could offer the Toffees forward more chances to make a case for himself since he would have to deal with several superstars at Spurs, PSG and Madrid. Whether that could play a role in giving us a lead over our rivals or not remains to be seen.

Some fans could have doubts over the South American’s quality, but they must consider how he has been able to drop solid performances in a struggling Merseyside team for quite a long time. Moreover, his displays for Brazil should also be taken into account before judging our attempt to sign him.
Richarlison still has two years left in his current contract, so we have to wait and see how much the Toffees value his services for. Then again, despite the demand from several major European sides and the long deal, their dire finances could potentially be used to haggle and reduce the sum to a fair price.
