The BOMB signing Manchester United want for their defense

Manchester United have received a significant boost in their search for promising 20-year-old Benfica defender Antonio Silva. According to reports from Record via SportWitness, the English club is looking to strengthen its squad for next season and has set its sights on the young Portugal international, who has emerged as a top prospect in European football.

Silva’s rise through the Benfica ranks has been remarkable since his arrival into the first team in the summer of 2022. Not only did he establish himself in the Portuguese club’s main team, but he also impressed enough to earn a place in the national team of Portugal. His talent and potential have made him a sought-after target for several clubs across Europe, with Manchester United leading the race for his defensive services.

Antonio Silva, an old wish from United

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their defense by adding two young centre-backs and Silva is one of the top targets on their transfer list. The English club doesn’t stop there, as they are also showing interest in 19-year-old Benfica midfielder Joao Neves, who is also considered a rising star in Portuguese football.

Although Benfica would prefer to keep their two young talents, the club’s financial situation could lead them to consider selling at least one of them in the next transfer market. Although Silva has a contract lasting more than three years and is protected by a €100 million release clause, Manchester United are confident of reaching a favorable agreement with the Portuguese club to secure the signing of the talented defender. However, negotiations are still pending and the final transfer price remains uncertain.
