Manchester United have joined a growing list of clubs watching forward Richarlison, according to Sky Sports News. Everton, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are the other clubs heavily linked with him.
Richarlison has been a revelation this season in the Premier League. He has been sensational for Watford and is currently one of the hottest properties in the League.
The 20 year old started off very brightly for the Hornets, scoring 5 goals in his first 12 appearances and has made 36 appearances till now. He was very influential for the team with his overall performance even if he didn’t score. This led to suggestions, that many top Premier League clubs were interested to sign him at the end of the season.
However, Richarlison, who has yet to score since the 2-0 win over West Ham back in November, has been unable to replicate his stunning form from the first few months of the season and has been dropped to the bench last few games. Watford are concerned that he is struggling, having played football for 12 months without a break.
Though there is no doubt on his talents and many clubs are still keeping tabs on him according to reports.
Chelsea considered signing the Brazilian last summer but chance of first team football prompted the move to Watford. The Blues are still interested in signing him this summer. According to latest news, Manchester United are also keeping tabs on the youngster and could move for him this summer.
Watford are aware of this and would only consider offers of around £40 million for the forward but it won’t be a problem for the clubs as they have the required money to sign players.
