Manchester United transfer news: Jose Mourinho targets €60m Porto star

Manchester United are the latest side to join in on the race to sign FC Porto’s in demand midfielder Andre Silva, according to the Mirror.

Per-the-source, the 21-year-old has attracted the attention of clubs across Europe following an impressive start to the 2016-17 season.

The report states that United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on overhauling the squad that has proved itself unfit for purpose.

Meanwhile, the Daily Record states that Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester City are among a group of clubs after Silva.

Per-the-source Silva currently has a release clause of €60 million.

Silva’s form on club level earned him a call-up to the Portugal national team. The 21-year-old’s international career started with four goals in four games, including a first-half hat-trick against the Faroe Islands last month.

Manchester United take on their biter rivals Arsenal in their next Premier League fixture this weekend.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways last week following a 3-1 victory over Swansea City.
