​Man Utd join Liverpool in chase for Sporting CP star Goncalves

Manchester United and Liverpool are among the many teams interested in a move for Sporting CP star Pedro Gonclaves.

The 22-year-old is enjoying a very impressive season with Sporting in Portugal.

Goncalves has 15 goals in 22 games, and has a release clause for roughly £51.7 million.

According to The Telegraph, United see Gonclaves as an alternative to Jadon Sancho of Borussia Dortmund.

United would prefer to sign the latter, but may find he is out of their price range, as other areas of the team also require investment.

Goncalves has played in a central role this season but is more than capable of playing on either wing.

Liverpool were linked with Goncalves last month as they search for another midfielder.
