On Monday evening, Portuguese newspaper O Jogo featured a story about Manchester United’s chase for Sporting centre-back Gonçalo Inácio.

The newspaper didn’t wait for the printed edition to launch it, and said the Red Devils decided to go for the defender’s signing this summer, regardless of what Erik ten Hag’s future will be.

It turns out that O Jogo wasn’t the only one with that information, as A Bola, Record and Jornal de Notícias also share very similar stories today.

Starting with A Bola, it’s said Manchester United already made ‘exploratory contacts’ to get more information on the potential signing, and now ‘prepare to present an offer’ for the player.

Their story claims that the Red Devils are well aware that the player’s price is €60m, the same as his release clause, and still, can come up with a bid in the ‘coming days’.

Record’s story is pretty much the same. It’s said Manchester United made contact and the ‘next step’ is now a concrete bid.

Also claiming the bid could arrive in the next few days, the only difference in their piece is that they claim the €60m could be reached with bonuses included.

The only outlet with a slightly different take is Jornal de Notícias. They have the same information as others, but insist Manchester United are not keen on paying that much money.

With all papers sounding so sure that the Red Devils are about to place their bid, we must now wait for it.
