Manchester United considering move for Everton’s Richarlison

Could Manchester United prise Richarlison from Everton?

Manchester United are reportedly considering a move for Everton’s Brazilian star Richarlison as part of their summer rebuild under Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

Toffees star Richarlison has had a successful debut season at Goodison Park.

The Brazilian joined last summer from Watford despite the relationship between the clubs over Marco Silva.

An approach from Everton for Silva was the catalyst for the downturn in form and eventual sacking of Silva according to Watford.

Though, Everton were able to get a deal done for Richarlison and they will be glad they did.

The forward has scored 14 goals this season and has largely been a key play under Silva.

That lead to some pretty big interest during the January transfer window where Everton reportedly had to reject some big-money offers for Richarlison.

Now, they will have to brace themselves again this summer with Manchester United exploring a move.

Summer rebuild at Manchester United

As a result of a summer rebuild under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, Man United are reportedly considering a move for Richarlison.

According to the Telegraph, ‘Richarlison is the latest player to be considered by Manchester United as part of a huge summer overhaul of their failing squad.’

Their report continues by suggesting Jadon Sancho is among their targets but ‘there is also believed to have been a discussion over Richarlison who can play in a number of positions across the front-line although he appears most effective out wide.’ 

Marco Silva revealed at the beginning of the month that Everton would not sell Richarlison. 

That will come as no shock but will serve as a warning to Manchester United.

Should they move for Richarlison, it would take a huge bid to turn Everton’s head.
