Five-time European champions Manchester United are ready to spend the cash on Brazilian international striker Everton Soares when the January transfer window reopens according to various media reports.

Everton Soares plays for Brazilian Serie A side Gremio and he has a release clause of €60m.

The news of his possible transfer to Old Trafford is according to the publication from popular news channel ESPN via caughtoffside.

Everton Soares has scored 22 goals in over 100 appearances since he broke into the Gremio first team in 2014.

His impressive outings for Gremio led to his invitation to the Brazilian national team squad under manager Tite.

The 22-year-old made his debut for Brazil against the United States of America as a substitute for Paris Saint Germain (PSG) superstar Neymar.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his players have endured a disappointing start to the new season which has seen them drop to the eighth spot on the league table.

The former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager is keen to strengthen his squad especially in the central striker and centre back positions.

His central striker options have failed to impress this season.

First choice striker Romelu Lukaku has not scored for the Red Devils in the last two months (since September).
