Brazilian journalist Edison Silva has claimed in his Instagram account that , Manchester United are willing to pay R$100 million this summer to sign Gustavo Scarpo from Fluminense. R$100 million which amounts to £26m for a 23 year old attacking player is not much these days but Scarpo is virtually unknown in Europe so far.
Jose Mourinho will definetely look to splash the cash this summer as he needs to strengthen the team in some key areas. Left Back might become top priority if Luke Shaw doesn’t manage to impress the manager and break through to the first team. A central midfielder to replace Michael Carrick is also an urgent need as United have struggled to replace the Englishman for three seasons now. Zlatan’s future is still hanging in the balance as the Swede is yet to sign an extension to his contract but it will be a shocker if United don’t opt to extend his contract.
