Back in October, reports coming from Portugal indicated that Man Utd are willing to make a strong offer to sign the Benfica defender, who has a release clause of £86million (100 million euros).

More recently, Florian Plettenberg has revealed that Silva is a top target for the Premier League giants for the summer of 2024.

The renowned Sky Sports reporter has mentioned that Man Utd are willing to sort out details of the contract to sign Antonio Silva.

The 20-year-old center back was a key member of the Benfica side that won the Liga Nos title last season conceding just 20 goals.

He made 30 starts in the league and helped the Eagles keep no fewer than 18 clean sheets and also managed to score 3 goals.

This season, the Lisbon giants are once again on top of the table after 11 games and Silva has helped the team keep 5 clean sheets in 10 appearances thus far.

He made his senior international debut for Portugal back in November last year, made an appearance at the FIFA World Cup and has already earned 7 caps.

At Old Trafford, the best days of Lindelof, Maguire and Varane are long gone, on the other hand, Martinez has proved to be injury prone.

Therefore, a top and young central defender must be signed. In your view, should Man Utd pay £86million to sign Antonio Silva?
