Manchester United have received an answer regarding their Benfica targets

As reported by Manchester Evening News, Manchester United were relentlessly pursuing two targets from Benfica in a deal that could come up to £173m. However, the Red Devils might have to face disappointment once more.

Jorge Mendes who is a Portuguese agent has said that Joao Neves and Antonio Silva will not be going anywhere this season, as confirmed by Fabrizio Romano. These young stars will be staying put at Benfica for the time being.

Mendes has also stated that there were proposals made for both players, however, only Rui Costa will decide at the end of the season.

Manchester United will likely revisit these young stars during the summer. 19-year-old Neves has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in Liga Portugal.

On the other hand, 20-year-old Antonio Silva is also being hailed as one of the best defenders in Portugal at the moment. The Red Devils who have been exceptionally poor on defence can use the services of these players.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS will need to inject some money into the club this summer.

With Raphael Varane running out of contract during the summer, now would be a perfect time for the Old Trafford squad to bring in some defensive reinforcements. However, money is tight and the Red Devils haven’t been receiving a lot of lucrative offers either.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his new INEOS ownership will be tested this summer. The British billionaire will probably need to inject some funds into the club if the team wishes to make any significant signings during the summer.

The club’s newfound wealth could help them put Joao Neves and Antonio Silva in a Manchester United jersey next season.
