Manchester United continue to be linked with top quality players and once again the name of Bernardo Silva is in the media.
Last month, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that the Red Devils are plotting a move worth 70 million pounds (€83million) to hire the services of the Portuguese attacker next summer.
More recently, Le10sport have provided a very positive update for the Old Trafford faithful, which basically confirms that Man United are favorites to sign the 22-year-old star. The French source has stated that Mourinho’s team already has an option to secure the signature of Silva in the summer transfer window.
Bernardo can effectively play on either flank and also as a central attacking midfielder if needed. Monaco have mainly used him as a right winger this season.
Silva signed for Monaco from Benfica and has claimed (Star via SFR Sport) that he wants to finish his career with the Primeira Liga giants.
“My idol is Rui Costa. He was one of the best players in Portugal. Then he went to Italy, where he did great things, before finishing in Portugal in Benfica.”
“This is a model for me because I too want to finish my career one day in Benfica.”
This season, in 37 appearances, he has scored 9 goals and provided 7 assists in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side.
