Porto’s right wing back Danilo is most likely not going to remain in Portugal beyond the summer with various teams rumored to be interested in his signature. Barcelona and Arsenal have been the top contenders in recent weeks but Manchester United have come into the picture in a big way.
Manchester United have struggled defensively this season and a player like Danilo would fit perfectly into Van Gaal’s 3-5-2 system and the Dutchman knows this. Manchester United have moved to hijack the deal for Danilo from Barcelona and Arsenal as the 20 time premier league champions have already entered into talks concerning Danilo’s transfer. Manchester United’s initial bid is believed to be within the range 0f 30 million euros but Porto are rumored to have set an asking price in excess of 40 million euros for the Brazilian. Manchester United are looking to close the deal before the summer transfer window opens. Porto are looking to make the most out of the transfer as they know they can’t hold on to the 23 year old any longer.
Arsenal and Barcelona are sure going to make signing the Brazilian hard as we expect the Spanish and English giants to make offers within the next week.
