A report from England on Tuesday has credited Premier League outfit Manchester United with an interest in Sporting winger, Pedro Goncalves

Who is Pedro Goncalves?

The 22-year-old joined Sporting in the summer of 2020, following spells with Wolves and FC Famalicao.

During his time in England, Goncalves managed just one appearance for Wolves’ senior side.

However, after finding his feet at Famalicao, he has since gone on to seriously impress at Sporting.

In just 26 outings for the Verde e Brancos this season, Goncalves has managed to net 15 goals, as well as providing five assists.

Man United linked with Sporting’s Pedro Goncalves

Such fine form, in turn, has inevitably attracted interest from some top clubs.

It was previously reported that Liverpool made ‘informal’ contact with Sporting during the January transfer window, whilst continuing to track Goncalves’ progress ahead of the summer.

And now, as mentioned above, it appears as though another of the Premier League’s heavy hitters are expressing an interest in the attacker.

As per Mike McGrath of the Telegraph, Man United’s new recruitment team have been looking at Goncalves, amid a search for new right-wing options this summer.

Should United, Liverpool or any other potentially interested party actually intend to sign Goncalves, though, it appears they will have to fork over a fairly hefty sum.

This comes amid further claims that the Sporting standout, whose current contract runs until the summer of 2025, has a buyout clause of £51.7m.
