Manchester United leading Bayern Munich and Juventus in £40m pursuit of Watford ace Richarlison

MANCHESTER UNITED are leading the chase for £40million-rated Watford forward Richarlison.

The Brazilian joined the Hornets last year for £11million on a five-year deal from Fluminese.

And the 20-year-old hit the ground running bagging five goals in his first 12 games to put the Premier League big boys on red alert.

And should United win the battle for his signature this summer, it looks certain to end Anthony Martial’s time at Old Trafford.

United have run out of patience with the forward who is being chased by Juventus, Bayern Munich and Lyon.

The French international has been frustrated by his lack of game time at Old Trafford and is keen to move on.

Jose Mourinho is prepared to listen to offers for Martial as he looks to reshape his squad to challenge Manchester City next season.

Part of his work will be replacing the 22-year-old, and the United boss has identified Richarlison as the man to slot into his squad and understand his position in the Old Trafford pecking order.
