MU closed the target of Antonio Silva
Besides midfielder Enzo Fernandez, MU is still contacting the transfer of Antonio Silva, one of the mainstays of Benfica this season.
According to the Portuguese press, the representative of MU had an initial discussion with Benfica to find a common voice, before making an official proposal.
Recently, Erik ten Hag confirmed the possibility of selling Harry Maguire next summer and Antonio Silva is the ideal alternative.
Antonio Silva has improved tremendously with Benfica this season. The 19-year-old midfielder has just won a spot with Portugal to attend the 2022 World Cup.
Antonio Silva’s contract has a €100 million release clause. MU negotiated directly with Rui Costa’s president for a fee of 60 million euros.
Liverpool contact Moukoko
Sport Bild reported, Liverpool plan to recruit young striker Youssoufa Moukoko in the winter transfer window.
Moukoko is one of the promising talents of German football, with 6 goals in 14 Bundesliga matches this season.
Moukoko’s contract expires at the end of the season and he has no intention of extending it. Therefore, Dortmund decided to sell the Cameroonian German player in January 2023.
Moukoko, who will turn 18 on the opening day of the 2022 World Cup (November 20), has a great opportunity to make his debut for Germany at the tournament in Qatar.
Dortmund wants to collect 30 million euros from Moukoko. However, Liverpool think that the price of 20 million euros will be more reasonable.
Tottenham want Choupo-Moting
Coach Antonio Conte wants to add a “9” to the Tottenham squad to compete Premier League and Champions League, and Choupo-Moting is the solution mentioned.
Tottenham need a new striker to ease the load on Harry Kane, who will be tired after the 2022 World Cup.
Choupo-Moting is very effective in the Bayern Munich shirt. The 33-year-old striker has German nationality – Cameroon scored 10 goals after 15 matches. On average, he has 1 goal every 77 minutes.
Choupo-Moting’s transfer price is not high, as his contract expires at the end of the season.
Choupo-Moting is also currently contacted by MU. However, the fact that Tottenham compete in the Champions League is an advantage in the transfer race.
