Real Madrid Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr. has been offered to English Premier League side Manchester United as they make plans to land France and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe. Manchester United and Madrid are already in talks over a potential signing of Raphael Varane; this summer, the Brazilian could also join the defender in United.
Real Madrid Offer Vinicius Jr. to Manchester United
According to reports, United have also been offered the Brazilian winger, with a loan move that could turn into a permanent deal ‘most likely option’. The only problem now is that Madrid wants a minimum of £68.5m for the 21-year-old.
Manchester United is already expected to announce the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho at any time, with a £73m deal agreed. Vinicius Jr. is said to be disappointed that the La Liga side is looking to move him on, given the fact that new manager Carlo Ancelotti hopes to keep him.
But Madrid is looking for a way to raise around €150m (£128m) to sign Mbappe this summer despite his contract at PSG expiring next year. The young Brazilian joined Madrid in the summer of 2018, a year after the club agreed on a £36m deal to sign him from Brazilian side Flamengo.
The player has been able to score 15 goals in his 118 appearances for the Santiago Bernabeu side.
