Manchester United’s Potential Pogba Replacement ‘Likened To Ronaldo, Better Than Fernandes,’ Report Says
Goncalves has been compared to Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo. The midfielder’s agent has shut down rumours of his client’s potential move to United.
Manchester United has identified a candidate to replace Paul Pogba in Sporting CP’s Pedro Goncalves, according to reports.
The buzz about Goncalves being on Man United’s radar this transfer window has reached the masses. Goncalves has earned comparisons to Bruno Fernandes after he filled the void left by the 26-year-old at Sporting, and just recently, Discovery-owned TV network Eurosport dubbed the midfielder the “next Cristiano Ronaldo.”
What’s even more interesting is that Goncalves has recorded better numbers than Fernandes did during the latter’s time at Sporting. The 22-year-old is currently averaging a goal every 83 minutes this season, making him more than twice as effective as Fernandes was in his final half-season at Sporting with a goal every 191 minutes.
The reports added that a £54.4 million ($73 million) bid will be enough to send the highly-rated midfielder to United.
