Manchester United given huge boost to sign Brazilian star

Manchester United seem to have been given a huge boost in their pursuit to sign the Brazilian star and could land him as soon as January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer huffed and puffed on the sidelines during Manchester United’s defeat to their arch rivals, Manchester City, in the Carabao Cup semi-final. His team were horrid and the performance was dire.

At the weekend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a much more composed figure on the touchline. The Red Devils delivered a magnificent free flowing 4-0 victory over Norwich City. At the end the uncanny and characteristic smile seemed genuine and finally one of optimism since the start of the new year.

The victory over Norwich could be the turning point in Manchester United’s season. It was most certainly the lift Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needed and with the club close to making their first signing of the January transfer window, things are all of sudden looking much brighter at Old Trafford.

In fact things could get even better. Manchester United have been linked with a move for Everton’s Richarlison in the January transfer window and it seems the Red Devils could have just been given a huge boost to sign the young Brazilian. Everton seems to have identified a replacement for Richarlison.

According to GloboEsporte via the Daily Mail, Everton are ‘tracking’ their namesake and Brazilian star Everton Soares and he is one of Carlo Ancelotti’s key targets.

With Everton playing in the same position as Richarlison it seems highly likely that he could be a replacement at the Toffees for his compatriot.

Richarlison is one of the best up and coming forwards in the Premier League. He has been prolific as a striker over the last few years in the Premier League and is still just 22 years of age. He has a plethora of experience at international level too with six goals for Brazil in nineteen appearances.

His pace, and his samba skills as well as his ability to find the back of the net regularly could make him the perfect partner alongside Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
