In the realm of transfer news, renowned expert Fabrizio Romano has shared his insights regarding Manchester United’s quest for an ideal center-back.
In an exclusive column for the Daily Briefing, Romano delved into the Red Devils’ imminent transfer priorities, emphasizing their pursuit of a top-tier defender.
While names like Jean-Clair Todibo and Edmond Tapsoba have emerged as potential targets for Manchester United, Romano personally advocates for the acquisition of the promising Benfica youngster, Antonio Silva.
At a mere 19 years of age, Silva has rapidly ascended the ranks of European football, capturing the attention of scouts and aficionados alike.
Romano envisions this move as akin to the Josko Gvardiol deal, suggesting that Silva possesses the same potential for success.
“Next on the agenda for United is likely to be a center-back, a top priority for 2024,” Romano elucidated.
“While they hold interest in Todibo and Tapsoba, I believe Antonio Silva from Benfica could be the standout option. I truly admire his skills—a golden opportunity for any club seeking a talented central defender, mirroring the scenario we witnessed with Josko Gvardiol last year.
It might not be an outright steal, but it could prove to be a prudent investment in a burgeoning talent.”
Although the signing of the Portuguese international remains uncertain, Silva unquestionably emerges as a player of great intrigue.
His burgeoning potential warrants close observation, not only by Manchester United but also by other top clubs across Europe, all of whom may contemplate joining the race to secure his signature in the near future.
