Manchester United interested in signing 24-year-old powerhouse in January

Manchester United Football Club lost their first game of the season over the weekend, as the derby sadly ended in defeat. That has seemingly prompted Jose Mourinho to take a look at some new faces in the transfer market, and a move for another star looms in January.

According to Calciomercato, Manchester United will make an approach to sign William Carvalho of Sporting Lisbon when the window opens in a few months time – as the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has identified the midfield as an area that still needs work.

The 24-year-old had an impressive Euro 2016 with Portugal, and is making a real name for himself in his homeland, and you feel it is only a matter of time before he seals a move away.

He certainly won’t be cheap to the eventual buyer, though, and although it’d be a brilliant bit of business, Sporting Lisbon obviously won’t be keen on parting with one of their key assets in the middle of a domestic season – so that’d probably mean United would have to pay that little bit extra.
