Liverpool scouts sent to watch Manchester United defensive target: report


Manchester United are looking at Goncalo Inacio as a potential Harry Maguire replacement, say reports, but Liverpool could provide competition for the Sporting CP defender.

The 22-year-old has become a mainstay for the Lisbon club and this year broke into the Portugal side too.

Inacio has started every game for Sporting this season and starred in Portugal’s 5-0 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina this month, producing an assist in the rout.

According to a report in The Mirror, Inacio has attracted interest from Man Utd and Liverpool.

He was being considered as a Maguire replacement over the summer, but the England international ended up staying on at Old Trafford when a West Ham move fell through.

The Red Devils could rekindle their interest, but Liverpool scouts watched the player during the international break and a two-way battle between the Premier League rivals could break out.
