Three-time European champions Manchester United are plotting a move for Everton attacker Richarlison according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.
Richarlison has been a consistent performer for Everton since joining the Merseyside club from fellow Premier League side Watford in the summer of 2018 in a deal reported to be around £35m plus £15m in add-ons based on performances and appearances.
The specific publication from the stables of the London Evening Standard said that Manchester United want to sign the Brazilian international player at the end of this season.

Manchester United have not been able to replace players like Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku who have both signed for Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean international and he’s on loan at Inter Milan from Premier League club Manchester United, while Lukaku moved to Inter Milan permanently for a fee of around £74m.
Both Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku joined Inter Milan in the summer.
Richarlison would go a long way to offset the quality lost by the exit of both Lukaku and Sanchez.
He scored five goals and five assists in the Premier League upon joining Watford from Brazilian Serie A outfit Fluminense in 2017.
