Manchester United are said to be preparing a new offer for FC Porto’s forward Evanilson after the initial bid of £52 million was rejected.
The 22-year-old Brazilian forward joined Porto in 2020 from Brazil’s second-tier club Tombense for a fee of £8 million.
The Brazilian marksman has scored 25 goals with five assists in 70 appearances for Portuguese club Porto since joining in 2020.
United boss Eric ten Hag is yet to make a signing this summer, with fans becoming anxious with the lack of action.
However, according to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo (as quoted by Sports Witness), the Red Devils look to relieve the pressure off Cristiano Ronaldo as they prepare a second improved bit for Brazilian striker Evanilson from Porto.
The report says that United haven’t given up after their initial bid was rejected, and the club are “preparing a new onslaught” for his signing.
The new, improved offer is expected to be close to £69million (€80m), which Porto could accept.
However, Porto have already lost Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira to Arsenal earlier this week and are also expected to lose Vitinha to Paris Saint-Germain who are reportedly set for the 22-year-old’s medical.
The Red Devil fans will be eager to get the ball rolling, but who will be their first signing of the summer?
