Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Porto striker Evanilson and have already had a £55million offer for the 22 year old Brazilian rejected by Porto.

After missing out on both Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez who joined Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, Manchester United have now shifted focus to Evanilson with Erik ten Hag eager to sign a new centre forward.

Evanilson scored 21 goals in 46 appearances for Porto last season, his second full season with the club.

Porto are reportedly open to letting Evanilson join Manchester United if they receive an offer of £70million for the 22 year old Brazilian.

Evanilson has indicated he would prefer to remain at Porto for at least one more season to further his development amid interest from Manchester United.

While he admits he loves English football, he insists he still needs to ‘evolve’ and believes Porto is the best place to do that for the time being.

“I like English football. I really like English football,” Evanilson said in an interview with Lance published this week.

He added: “I’m at a good level in my career, but I’m not at a top level.

“I have a lot to evolve. But that’s what I work for. If any big team comes… I will try to do my best at FC Porto. I will work hard to be prepared to the fullest.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold has revealed the club is doing everything possible to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

On De Jong, Arnold told the fans: “Money is not a consideration in who we want.

“It’s that the manager wants him, that they’ve actually done the work on looking if he’s a great player.

“Is it £100 million or £200million? I don’t know. Get who you f***ing want. 

“Do you want me buying the players? Doesn’t that ring a bell?”

According to one of the fans who spoke to Arnold, the United chief also said: “United officials are in Barcelona getting the deal done for De Jong.

“As a club we’re doing everything possible to get the deal done, I’ve been up for days trying to get it done. The money is there but there’s things standing in our way which I can’t say.”
