BREAKING NEWS: Biggest news coming from Old Trafford, man united agrees deal for Portuguese world-class defender. Man United have an agreement in place with the agents of Antonio Silva. Now, they just need to agree a fee with SL Benfica. Man United ‘have an agreement’ with agents over signing of Antonio Silva.


Manchester United have reached an agreement with the representatives of Antonio Silva and are now tasked with negotiating a fee with SL Benfica.

The likelihood of Manchester United securing a defender this summer is high, particularly given the evident issues in their defensive line.

Erik ten Hag, the manager, has faced considerable inconsistency in the defensive positions, making the addition of a dependable center-back imperative.

Numerous names have been linked to fill this void, with Jarrad Branthwaite currently standing out, alongside Antonio Silva, who was previously associated with a move to United.

While talks surrounding Silva’s potential transfer quieted down, journalist Darragh Moloney has provided an update on United’s pursuit of Silva, revealing that the club has a pre-existing agreement with the 20-year-old’s agents for a summer transfer. Now, the negotiation hinges on reaching a fee agreement with SL Benfica.

However, this could pose a challenge as Silva’s contract includes a hefty £85 million release clause. United remains optimistic about securing a deal below this valuation.

Despite his youth, Silva’s potential to serve United for over a decade justifies the substantial fee. His exceptional talent suggests he could seamlessly integrate into the team upon arrival at Old Trafford.

Moreover, Silva’s playing style is expected to complement Lisandro Martinez, provided the latter can maintain fitness following a challenging season.

Given United’s successful history with signings from the Portuguese league, tapping into this market for Silva appears logical and promising.
