Everton’s Richarlison confirms offer from Man United

Manchester United Football Club are set for a huge summer transfer window. Now is the time to back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and try to give him a real platform to build upon from.

The Baby Faced Assassin has made five quality signings since taking over at Old Trafford, so it makes sense to continue to back the Norwegian and allow him to build a squad that fits his style.

Amongst the areas of concern is an extra attacker. That would explain all the links to Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish, though seemingly, United have been quietly working on other deals behind the scenes…

Over the weekend, Everton’s Richarlison lifted the lid on a potential Old Trafford switch, as the talented 23-year-old confirms a January offer from United…

“There were lots of offers during the season, from Barcelona, from Manchester (United),” he revealed to Los Desimpedidos, transcribed via Goal

“But the club opted to keep me in the group and I didn’t want to leave in the middle of the season. It’s bad to leave team-mates like this.”

Richarlison has scored thirteen goals so far this season, impressing under Carlo Ancelotti at Everton. However, he definitely won’t come cheap. After all, the Toffees paid £50million to sign the Brazilian from Watford. They’re going to want to make a hefty profit on that…

It seems as though FC Barcelona actually went as far as making an official bid of £85million in January, which was eventually turned down by the Goodison Park outfit.

Credit where it’s due, though, Richarlison openly admitted he wouldn’t want to leave his teammates in this situation. He wants to play out the season and see what happens over the summer – although it may be a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
