Devils, Gun­ners lin­ing up Por­tuguese An­dre Silva

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

MANCH­ESTER UNITED are re­port­edly weigh­ing up a move for Por­tuguese striker An­dre Silva.

The 21-year-old has caught the eye of Europe’s lead­ing clubs with his per­for­mances for Porto and his coun­try this sea­son.

Only last month, Ar­se­nal sent out scouts to run the rule over Silva, who is thought to be worth £53m.

With Alexis Sanchez yet to agree a new deal, Arsene Wenger is keep­ing his op­tions open.

Jose Mour­inho is keen to bring in some fresh faces to Manch­ester United in Jan­uary, al­though it is thought he could axe eight play­ers.

United spent over £150m in the sum­mer, but things haven’t gone ac­cord­ing to plan on the pitch.

And ac­cord­ing to the Daily Record, United are keen on Silva, who was only called up to the na­tional side in Au­gust.

It is be­lieved Mour­inho wants to add some much-needed fire­power to his at­tack.

Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic has seen his goalscor­ing rate slow down in re­cent weeks, while Mar­cus Rash­ford has been played out of po­si­tion on the wing.

The re­port sug­gests United are keen to avoid a re­peat of the Re­nato Sanches saga.

United hes­i­tated over a trans­fer fee, but the player joined Bay­ern Mu­nich for £27.5m last sum­mer.
