Manchester United & Liverpool are destined to miss out on the signing of William Carvalho this summer, as he’s edging closer to a move to French giants Monaco.

Contrary to certain reports which indicated that the mega-rich Ligue 1 outfit had cooled their interest in Sporting Lisbon’s brightest talent, the Express claims that sources in France are playing up the notion of Carvalho joining Monaco ahead of either United or Liverpool. The Premier League duo have long had respective interests in the 21-year-old playmaker, and at various points over the last few months it’s been detailed that United have been close to agreeing a deal.

However now it looks as though the two English giants will be beaten to Carvalho’s signature, courtesy of the fact that Monaco are soon to appoint his current boss, Leonardo Jardim, as their new manager. The uber-rich principality are said to be advanced talks with the Sporting coach over replacing Claudio Ranieri this summer and his influence is said to be strong enough to give them the edge with regards to the Carvalho race.

Possessive of a release clause worth £37million, it’s clear that the Portuguese starlet won’t come cheap. However neither United nor Liverpool will be able to rely on the idea of Monaco not having the money to complete a deal, as their capture of Radamel Falcao last summer proved they are serious about challenging Europe’s elite.
