Manchester United Interested in Signing Joao Palhinha from Fulham

As the summer transfer window approaches, Manchester United is eyeing a move for Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha.

The club’s summer spending plans are contingent on the final decision regarding Erik ten Hag’s future as manager, expected to be resolved this week. Despite this uncertainty, transfer rumors are swirling, with various players linked to bolstering the squad.

Renowned journalist Kaveh Solhekol confirmed United’s interest in the 28-year-old Premier League midfielder, Joao Palhinha. However, competition for his signature is fierce, with Bayern Munich and Barcelona also expressing interest.

Fulham recently rejected a £30 million bid from Bayern for Palhinha, indicating their valuation of the Portuguese midfielder is higher. With no release clause in his contract, securing his services could come at a significant cost.

Palhinha has impressed in recent seasons with his consistent quality on the field, particularly in the defensive midfielder role—a position where United’s squad lacks depth. While his Premier League experience adds value, his potential transfer fee may increase due to the direct competition within the league.

If Manchester United can negotiate the right price, acquiring Palhinha would represent a shrewd move, addressing a key area of need in the squad and adding quality to the midfield ranks.3.5
