Manchester United have held internal talks over signing Everton forward Richarlison, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Richarlison’s season
The Brazilian forward, valued at €50m by CIES Football Observatory, has contributed to ten Premier League goals in a struggling Everton side this season.
Happy with Ten Hag at Old Trafford?
No, he's not the right man!
He’s still under contract at Goodison Park for a further two years, but with the Toffees flirting with relegation, it looks as if United are keeping tabs on the forward’s situation.
The Latest: United talks
Romano shared an update on Richarlison on Thursday afternoon, sharing details of an agency switch for the 24-year-old.
The transfer guru revealed that the Red Devils have spoken about Richarlison internally, along with Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.
“Everton striker Richarlison and his Velasco Sport Group have now officially signed with CAA Base agency.
“Been told Manchester United have discussed Richarlison internally, alongside Darwin Nunez and other options.
“Of course no talks now – he’s totally focused on Everton.”
The Verdict: Ten Hag involved?
However, it is unlikely that he’ll know about these talks regarding Richarlison as he is preparing his Ajax side for a Dutch Cup final this weekend.
Should the 52-year-old want Richarlison, then a summer move could be explored, especially if Everton suffer relegation, however, for now, it seems to be a case of United chiefs drawing up a list of potential targets for their soon to be new boss.
