Manchester United are also interested in Florentino who is valued at €15 million according to Transfermarkt. with A Bola (via Sport Witness) claiming that the Red Devils were monitoring him and Ruben Dias.
Florentino has been doing really well at Benfica so far and there’s no doubt that several clubs will be interested in signing him.
