Manchester United must act swiftly to improve the squad in the winter transfer window and two Benfica players are on their radar.
As per a report covered by O Jogo today (news image provided below), the likes of Antonio Silva, Goncalo Ramos and Florentino are main targets wanted by top European sides and the first two are on United’s wishlist.
Ramos has scored 15 goals in all competitions for the Eagles this season and he struck a brilliant hat-trick at the World Cup in the Round of 16.
The Portuguese media outlet have claimed that the 21-year-old center forward is one of the main options for Erik ten Hag to reinforce his attack this month.
On the other hand, United want to hire the services of Antonio Silva to improve their backline.
The 19-year-old also featured for the Seleccao in Qatar and has been rock solid at the back for Benfica in the current campaign.
O Jogo reveal that in the January transfer window, Benfica will only sell their players if their termination clauses are activated.
Ramos has a release clause of 120 million euros in his contract and Silva has a clause of 100 million euros. Therefore, to sign the duo, Man Utd will have to splash a combined fee of 220 million euros (£195million).
Ten Hag needs a striker to replace Ronaldo at Old Trafford and Ramos is a top quality young option.
In the central defense, Harry Maguire continues to warm the bench he must leave to play week in and week out. United splashed a lot of cash to sign Lisandro Martinez last summer. Should they break the bank to lure Antonio Silva?
