Manchester United are in advanced talks with Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva, according to reports.
He’s scored 10 goals in 54 games from midfield for the French champions this term with Jose Mourinho allegedly leading the race for his signature.
Silva had opened up about a summer transfer last week, claiming he has dreams of playing for one of the best teams and in the best divisions one day.
Canal Plus claim Mourinho had intensified United’s interest as he was one of the stand-out performers as Monaco beat Manchester City in the Champions League last 16.
The Portuguese boss faces competition for his signature as he’s attracted interest from Europe’s elite even though Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has said he is not for sale, which is the same thing he said about Kylian Mbappe’s future plans.
The 22-year-old has really excelled at Monaco this term and there’s no doubt he will continue to be linked with an exit this summer as clubs look to recruit the top talent in football.
Monaco have a busy summer ahead as they hope to keep hold of their star assets and they won’t be looking to let go of their players without getting the best possible deals.
