Manchester United after Benfica’s Carlos Vinicius


Manchester United are interested in signing striker Carlos Vinicius from the Portuguese side Benfica this summer.

The 25-year-old has been in a stunning form for Benfica this season, scoring 20 goals in 33 appearances across all competitions this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are courting him in a bid to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams this summer with Odion Ighalo’s future uncertain at the moment.

Vinicius has a buyout clause of €100 million (£87 million) but Benfica are considering offloading him for less price due to the financial threat the coronavirus may pose.

A Bola reports that Manchester United are looking to bid around £35 – £40 million for the striker who has also provided 12 assists this season.


The Brazilian only joined the Super Eagles in 2019 for £15 million having been at Napoli where he never kicked a ball.

During the 2018/19 campaign, Vinicius enjoyed loan spells at Rio Ave and Monaco before signing for Benfica permanently.

Having player naturally as a holding midfielder, the 25-year-old scorec two goals on his debut as a striker at age 22 while playing in the Brazilian league and has since been a forward man.

Vinicius should he join the Red Devils will realistically be providing cover for Anthony Martial rather than playing as a first choice, as he has only enjoyed one prolific season under his belt.

A Bola also indicates that Premier League rivals Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers are also keeping a close eye on the player.
