Manchester United have reportedly made an approach for Fluminense midfielder Andre, but they will face competition from arch-rivals Liverpool.

According to Emmanuel Luiz, who is a transfer specialist for Brazil, United have approached Andre’s camp over a move to Old Trafford.

However, despite United approaching the South American side for the midfielder, it seems Liverpool are ahead of them in the race for the midfielder.

Luiz, who was speaking on The Redmen TV YouTube channel, has claimed that the exciting midfielder has an agreement on personal terms with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Player’s preference

Despite this, United are seemingly tentatively interested in the midfielder and have entered the race for the 22-year-old midfielder.

Having only entered the race for the midfielder recently, it is unclear whether the midfielder would choose Erik ten Hag’s United over Liverpool.

According to the football expert, Andre has an agreement on personal terms with the Anfield club and has told his current club that he wants to go to Liverpool.

It seems that the midfielder will remain at Fluminense due to the club’s participation in the Copa Libertadores as they have never won the competition and have gone far in the South American competition.

How much would it take for Andre to leave Fluminense

Further to the news relayed by Luiz, Globo Esporte, another Brazilian outlet, has claimed that the Anfield club were willing to put £25 million on the table but the Brazilian side were still not interested in the offer.

If Fluminense were willing to accept £30 million for the midfielder, then United should be all over that deal.

The Brazilian has incredibly high potential and for a fee that low, United should do everything they can to sign the midfielder.

A player small in stature but has the defensive qualities that United could need, he could represent a different option than Sofyan Amrabat.

Whether United push hard for the deal remains to be seen, but he is seemingly an option for Erik ten Hag’s side.
