Brazil and Everton forward Richarlison has revealed that both Manchester United and FC Barcelona made offers for his services before the start of the season.
The 23-year-old has caught a lot of attention in recent seasons, especially after netting 13 goals in his first season Everton.
Richarlison was also part of the Brazil side that lifted the 2019 Copa America without Neymar, which has certainly boosted his value.

"But the club opted to keep me in the group and I didn't want to leave in the middle of the season.
"It's bad to leave team-mates like this."
"Of course you feel impacted, Barcelona is one of the greatest clubs in the world, but I think happiness plays its part as well," he added.
The Brazilian has netted 10 goals this season and will be hoping to add to that tally when the Toffees host cross-town rivals Liverpool at Goodison Park on Sunday night.
