United make ‘first move’ to sign €100m-rated star who may have already played his last home game – report

Erik ten Hag was given some breathing room after Manchester United’s 3-2 victory against Newcastle, which enabled him to give an electrifying speech in front of the jubilant Old Trafford fans before the FA Cup final.

Forwards for Man United, notably up-and-coming players like Alejandro Garnacho and Amad Diallo, stepped up to maintain the team’s hopes of making it to the European tournament.

But the team’s well-known defensive shortcomings persisted, highlighting the fact that INEOS must make a major effort to acquire a top-tier center-back for their roster regardless of what happens in the season’s remaining two games.

Fortunately for the United faithful, it appears the club’s hierarchy has already started working on strengthening the backline which has let in 84 goals in all competitions this season, their most in a single campaign in more than 45 years.

Manchester United contact Antonio Silva’s representatives

TEAMtalk claims that United has made an attempt to sign Antonio Silva, a sensation at Benfica.

The 20-year-old central defender has become one of Europe’s most exciting prospects thanks to his remarkable passing range and poise when in possession, which have drawn interest from several prominent teams.

He appears to be Liga Portugal’s next major export, based on all the evidence. Silva might have even participated in his final home game for the Portuguese powerhouses, according to the article.

It is believed that United contacted Silva’s entourage to inquire about the prospect of a summer transfer to Old Trafford, making “their first move” for the Portugal international.

If Benfica’s star player decides to sign with United, who are looking for the perfect Raphael Varane successor, they won’t likely stand in his way.

But, given the English team’s situation, the Portuguese team might force them to accept their demand, which is estimated to be around €100 million (£86 million).

Due to United’s financial limitations as a result of Premier League PSR regulations, Silva’s signing seems like a pipe dream.

It would be prudent for Sir Jim Ratcliffe and associates to focus on Tosin Adarabioyo instead. This summer, the 26-year-old star of Fulham will be free to sign with another team.
