The talented 21-year-old midfielder, who has been compared with Brazil legend Kaka, has attracted plenty of attention from some of Europe’s top clubs in recent times, with a move looking increasingly likely in the near future.
United could do with new additions in midfield and now look set to be stepping up their interest in the player, with suggestions that talks have already begun to get the player to make the move to Old Trafford in January.
Silva’s agent Luiz Rocha has confirmed an official approach from the Red Devils, though he also stated that a bid to his club Cruzeiro has not yet been made, with an offer of £12m expected to be tabled in the coming weeks.
United have spent heavily on some big names since the appointment of Louis van Gaal at the club this summer, though this signing would see a switch of approach to a more sustainable strategy in the transfer market, with a promising youngster making his way to the club for relatively cheap.
