Solskjaer told it will cost Manchester United £36 million to sign up defender in January
Manchester United will have to pay £36 million ($48m) if they want to prise David Carmo from Braga, it has been claimed.
It is no secret in the media that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to get the transfer business done in the summer window that he needed, as the club were too fixated on trying to secure a transfer deal for Jadon Sancho.
In the Solskjaer only managed to bring Alex Telles, Donny Van De Beek and Edinson Cavani to the club, but he failed to bring in a new centre-back that could add a bit more pace to that back-line.
But ahead of the January transfer window, there has been some speculation in the media that United have been showing a real interest in trying to secure a deal for Carmo, and are even ready to pay around £20 million to wrap up a winter deal.
However, claims on The Athletic have suggested that United will have to stump up a massive £36 million if they want to bring Carmo to the club
His release clause has risen again on the back of signing a new contract, and Braga have no intention of letting him leave unless the asking price is met.
Look, we are all for United signing a very talented defender, but at the end of the day, they need players that will come in and make an immediate impact, we have said it many times before, and we firmly believe that is still the case.
Why would you pay £36 million on Carmo, when you can get Dayot Upamecano for a fee of just £50 million, it doesnt make sense does it?
