Manchester United are weighing up a potential bid to sign Everton winger Richarlison in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Telegraph is reporting that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to sign five new players in the summer to revamp his ailing Red Devils squad.

The same article states that the 20-time English champions have been internally discussing the possibility of launching a swoop for the 21-year-old winger.

According to the same story, Manchester United would have to pay in excess of £35m to sign the highly rated Brazilian forward at the end of the Premier League season.

The Telegraph report goes on to suggest that the Red Devils first considered Richarlison as a potential summer signing before their 3-0 loss to FC Barcelona at Camp Nou earlier this month.

The South American winger was one of four goal-scorers in Everton’s 4-0 victory over Manchester United at Goodison Park in the Premier League last weekend.

Richarlison has scored 13 goals and has made one assist in 33 games in the Premier League after Everton signed the Brazilian from Watford in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of the Old Trafford outfit.
