The Red Devils have only netted 50 goals in this season’s Premier League so far, which is the lowest in the top 7. Even Everton have netted 60 league goals in the current campaign.
Therefore, Manchester United are seriously looking to improve the quality of their attacking department in the summer transfer window.
Earlier in the day, we covered a report (via Don Balon) claiming that James Rodriguez has decided to leave Real Madrid and join Man United in the summer.
Moreover, Portuguese international and Monaco star Bernardo Silva is in the lime light as well. According to reports in France (GFFN via France Football), Manchester United have moved in and are in advanced talks with the 22-year-old star to secure his signing in a deal worth €50million.
Yesterday, Le10Sport also covered a similar report and stated that Jose Mourinho would be willing to offer €50million to hire the services of the former Benfica star.
Monaco are currently leading the Ligue 1 table and Silva has been one of their top performers this season. In 51 games (all competitions) the Seleccao star has directly contributed in 20 goals (9 goals and 11 assists). He has made 11 appearances for the senior national side so far and scored one goal.
Bernardo is mainly a (right) winger, who could be deployed at either flank and has also effectively played as a central attacking midfielder when needed.
His current contract with Monaco will expire in 2020 and it has a release clause of €81million (AS). In your opinion, should United sign James or Silva?
