Manchester United have made an offer that “cannot be refused” to swoop Monaco star, Bernardo Silva this summer according to report.
Silva has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last six months, while Manchester City are also said to be in the running for the player.
French outlet Le10Sport recently claimed that Jose Mourinho has made the 22-year-old a priority target, while Canal+ reported that United had moved ahead of la liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona after having long talks with the player.
However, France Football now suggest that United have made a bid “that cannot be refused” to sign the Portugal international as reported in the Express.
Mourinho is reported to have a £200m transfer budget this summer and is looking forward to completely strengthen a United side that has been struggling to collapse the opposition, mostly at home, this season.
With the possibility of Champions League football next season, if United eventually beat Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday, parts of the Old Trafford team need a greater stature and Bernardo Silva would be an additional welcome to the squad.
Silva revealed this week that he would be open to leaving the French champions, despite being contracted until 2020.
“I am finishing my third season in Monaco, who gave me the opportunity to play at a higher level,” Silva told Portuguese TV station SIC Noticias.
“But of course, every player dreams of playing for the best teams and in the best divisions one day.
“I’m no exception.”
