Man United monitoring £70million Ligue 1 star


Manchester United are likely to leave the majority of their transfer activity until the summer.

The Red Devils are set to sell Memphis Depay to Lyon by the end of this week, but other than that, it should be a relatively quiet window.

However, the Sun have it that Jose Mourinho does have his eye on one midfielder, even if he has to wait until the end of the season to bring him in.


Monaco’s Bernardo Silva is also attracting interest from Real Madrid, a factor which could push his price tag up to an incredible £70million.

Mourinho isn’t afraid to spend United’s money, though, and Silva is partly being targeted because he would complement their main target – Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann – well if he arrives from the Vicente Calderon.

A lot of clubs will be wary about paying huge money for Ligue 1 players due to the strength of the league, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic has proven that he can do it in both England and France, so there’s no reason why Silva can’t too.
