Bernardo Silva: Man United line up £70 million bid for Monaco star

This is very, very interesting.

According to reports, Manchester United are plotting a staggering bid for AS Monaco’s Bernardo Silva.

The bid is reportedly set at £70 million. This seems very far-fetched and implausible, but anything can happen in the modern era.

As reported by the Irish Independent:

“Manchester United are said to be “plotting” a £70m bid for Monaco winger Bernardo Silva, with Jose Mourinho offloading several high-earning players to free up his wage budget.

The Old Trafford club are already hot on the trail of Antoine Griezmann and Portuguese international Silva would add to their playmaking ranks in behind.

Silva has impressed in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season, including scoring the opener in Monaco’s win over Tottenham at Wembley and a brace this weekend as his side beat Marseille 4-1.

The 22-year-old shares the same agent as Jose Mourinho in Jorge Mendes, which would appear to make the move more of a possibility, but The Sun reports that Real Madrid are ready to enter a bidding war with their former manager to secure the player’s signature.”
