Despite having high hopes for acquiring a marquee center-back during the summer transfer window, the Red Devils ultimately were unable to finance one.The club intended to sell erstwhile captain Harry Maguire in order to recoup the majority of the funds, but the player chose to remain with the organization.

 

United remain in the rumor mill regarding central defenders, and Silva’s performances this season are reportedly “extremely scrutinized.”The club of Erik ten Hag is prepared to fulfill the contractual release clause of €100 million. His name appears near the summit of their transfer wish list.

 

Silva could be acquired by United next summer.

The Red Devils have already conceded 33 goals this season due to their weak defensive performance.

 

Their present defensive record is their worst in nearly six decades, but it is improbable that the club will make a significant investment during the winter transfer window.Due to the Financial Fair Play predicament, the hierarchy is unable to allocate €100 million in January without player sales.

 

They could instead seek out more affordable alternatives. Serhou Guirassy, a Stuttgart striker, and Radu Dragusin, a central defender for Genoa, are probable targets.

 

Silva could be a viable option for the Red Devils in the summer, but they will have to overcome formidable competition from Real Madrid and others.Due to the Financial Fair Play predicament, the hierarchy is unable to allocate €100 million in January without player sales.

One of the top young central defenders in international football is Silva. He has an impressive passing accuracy of 94% in the Primeira Liga this season.

 

Per game, he has recorded 2.8 tackles, 5.6 duels, and over three clearances.

 

Seven recoveries are the norm for the 20-year-old, who has been disposed of a mere 4.7 times per excursion.

 

Silva has only played senior football for one year, but he has already demonstrated considerable maturity and appears prepared to face a greater challenge.

 

United will be anticipating his selection. Champions League football could potentially increase their likelihood of securing his services.
