Manchester United have struggled for a steady supply of goals this season, so attention has shifted to the summer and who might be able to bolster the side’s attacking powers once the transfer market opens up.
According GoalUnited have bet on the Brazilian international Richarlison, who is currently embroiled in a struggle for a relegation at Everton.
Outlet says United are “considering moving” for the 24-year-old.
On paper, Ralf Rangnick’s side has one of the best offensive squads in the world, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba all able to score. But they didn’t quite go as planned for this season.
This is United’s fifth consecutive season without cutlery, and as they are struggling to reset again, the young forward is a welcome option for Manchester’s red side.
With Cristiano Ronaldo leaving after just one season at the club and Edinson Cavani leaving as well, United will have to fill the gap ahead.
Mason Greenwood remains unavailable and Marcus Rashford is believed to be reflecting on his position with the club as well.
However, not only the Reds are interested in Richarlison. Real Madrid asked about him last year and may want to sign the striker again in this transfer window, especially if he fails to land Erling Haaland.
Barcelona has also been linked to the Everton star.
The striker is likely to come at a high price even if Everton are relegated from the league, so time will tell if United make a move for the 24-year-old.
United made a move for a striker once before, in the January 2020 transfer window, but the deal did not go through.
Coincidentally, Richarlison explained in an interview this week why the transfer did not take place.

“But the club decided to keep me in the group and I didn’t want to leave in the middle of the season. It’s bad to leave such teammates behind.
With United returning this summer, there should be no reason why the second bite of the cherry should not be successful.
