Manchester United have been inconsistent at the back this season and Ten Hag must splash the cash to reinforce the defense.
As far as the transfers are concerned, the Old Trafford outfit are seriously linked with Portuguese international, Antonio Silva.
As per today’s version of O Jogo (news image provided below), United are looking at Benfica’s performance this season, keeping an eye on Antonio Silva and João Neves, players introduced by Roger Schmidt into the first team.
Preparing for the future and strengthening the squad under the orders of Erik ten Hag, the 20-time English champions are very interested in the young duo.
Regarding Silva, Man Utd have real intent to secure his signature. The news source claim the Red Devils really intend to move forward to lure the 20-year-old central defender.
In fact, it is stated Man Utd are ready to pay an amount worth £86m (100 million euros) to activate the release clause and secure his signature.
United have not won the Premier League in over a decade and the drought will not end unless they set up a strong backline.
Silva is one of the best young defenders around and can serve the club in the long run. In your view, should Man Utd agree £86m fee to sign him?
