Brazil star admits to being flattered by £100m Man Utd, Barcelona links

Everton star Richarlison has admitted that he is flattered by reported interest from Manchester United and Barcelona.

The Brazilian forward enjoyed a fine debut season at Goodison Park after joining from Premier League rivals Watford for £40million.

Indeed, Richarlison’s 14 goals in 38 games across all competitions were enough to earn a call-up to Brazil’s Copa America squad this summer.

However, the report goes on to add that the 22-year-old has settled in England after moving over from Fluminense in 2017, and does not want to move abroad, prompting links with United to intensify.

Richarlison though is not thinking of leaving Goodison Park just yet.

“It’s a nice feeling when you get praise for your good work, but I’m not thinking about a transfer at the moment. I’ve just arrived at Everton. I’m happy here,” Richarlison told reporters.

Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan have all also been credited with interest in the forward, though the latter appears unlikely to launch a serious bid due to concerns over Financial Fair Play.
