Manchester United are reportedly interested in acquiring Vitinha, FC Porto midfielder.
The 22-year-old plays as a central midfielder. He made his way through the ranks at Porto before being loaned to Wolverhampton Wanderers for the 2020/21 season.
Many considered his time in the Premier League a mixed bag, and the club chose not to buy him for € 20 million.
After returning to Porto, Vitinha became a regular player of the Sergio Conceicao team, winning the double.
Lots of reports from Portugal linked United to the midfielder today.
Record claim that Vitinha is headed for an early exit, with an exemption clause of € 40 million.
The Red Devils are among the few Premier League clubs interested in a player.
Erik ten Hag is said to be interested in signing a contract with the Portuguese who could add some useful depth to the help desk.
OJogo reports that 22-year-old agent Jorge Mendes regularly meets top clubs such as Man Utd and Barcelona.
Finally, A Bola says Porto’s financial situation is making it difficult to keep Vitinha at the club and most likely move to the Premier League club.
United have yet to resolve their problems in the midfield. Frenkie De Jong seems like an obvious target, but he alone wouldn’t be able to hide all the glaring issues.
Vitinha can turn out to be a clever signature for the price.
His all-round abilities could be an asset to Ten The Hague as they would add new dynamism to United’s midfield squad.
Moreover, it could act as number six and could be the long-term successor to Nemanja Matic.
