Gonçalo Inácio's summer move is in full swing as Liverpool and Manchester United look to move Transfers

Liverpool have shown continued interest in promising young European defender Gonçalo Inácio. They are looking for a left-footed centre-back, which they do not have in their squad, and the Portuguese defender, who can supply a variety of passes with his left foot and can build from the final line, is an ideal candidate.

With other young defenders who have been producing results, such as Eintracht Frankfurt defender William Pacho, also on the radar, Manchester United are also interested in Sporting’s 22-year-old centre-back, with Fabrizio Romano saying that there could be movement on his departure this summer.

“One of the players they [Manchester United] appreciate, and that they have been scouting, is Goncalo Inacio from Sporting.”

“He has a release clause in the region of 60 million euros.”

“Goncalo Inacio is being monitored by Liverpool and Manchester United.”

“These two clubs are showing interest in Goncalo Inacio, let’s see if they decide to start a proper negotiation – but the interest is there, and the release clause is there.”

“So Goncalo Inacio could be a very interesting situation ahead of the summer transfer window.”

With veteran defender Joel Matip, who has anchored the backline in Jurgen Klopp’s regime, leaving at the end of his contract, Liverpool are looking to fill the void and secure a young centre-back who can support the defence in the medium to long term.

The Portuguese defender, who became a popular name last summer and had reported interest from several clubs, signed a new contract during the transfer window, agreeing a contract extension until June 2027, a move that never materialised at the time.

With his development as a centre-back and player, and the possibility of a Premier League challenge over the next year, can Liverpool make a move for the 22-year-old defender, who has the potential to become one of Europe’s leading defenders, and make the move a success…?
