Manchester United have been trying to secure potential signings for a quality right winger for quite some time but so far, Solskjaer has not managed to achieve that objective.
Having failed to secure the signing of Jadon Sancho or Dembele as reported earlier, United now are in talks to land sporting CP’s winger Pedro Goncalvez who is better known as ‘Pote’.
Manchester United have made contact with the Lions over a possible a deal of a 22 years old who has been impressive since joining them from Wolverhampton in the summer.
A realese clause of £53m was activated by Sporting CP but United are reluctant to meet that cost. However, negotiations are ongoing and a deal might be agreed today.
Pote has helped his side top the Portuguese league this season by netting twelve times in 13 league appearances.
The Red wasted several chances to earn all three points against Arsenal last night and now they are second with 3 points behind Man City, who have a game in hand as well.
Therefore, Solskjaer really needs to improve the squad before deadline to push for the Premier League title considering the congestion of fixtures as well.
Pote has been able to replace Fernandes at Sporting CP and it will be good to see him at Old Trafford since the right wing needs a regular stater.
