William Carvalho has been linked with a move to Manchester United for several months but it now seems as though Liverpool have moved into pole position for the Sporting Lisbon man’s signature.
It was believed that the Portugal international’s representative met with United officials in January but the departure of David Moyes has put the deal in jeopardy.
The 22 year-old has been included in Portugal’s 2014 World Cup squad and if he plays well in the tournament then his price will go through the roof, so if Liverpool want to get the player for as cheap as possible then they would need to attempt to sign the player soon.
Liverpool offer a more lucrative option for Carvalho because of the attraction of Champions League football next season and with Brendan Rodgers admitting that he wants to conclude his transfer business as soon as possible, the deal looks like a good possiblilty.
