Manchester United are ready to launch £155m summer bid to sign Benfica stars Ruben Dias and Joao Felix, according to a report in Portugal.
Portuguese media outlet Record, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Manchester United are interested in a deal to bring both Dias and Felix to Old Trafford.
The same article states that Manchester United have already spoken to Felix’s agent Jorge Mendes as the Red Devils look to secure the signing of the “next Cristiano Ronaldo”.
According to the same story, Felix is valued at around £90m despite his relative lack of experience at the top level in his fledgling career so far.
The report goes on to add that Manchester United will face competition from bitter rivals Manchester City and Serie A giants Juventus for Felix.
Record reveal that the 20-time English champions have also sent scouts to watch Dias this season, with the Benfica defender valued at around £65m by the Portuguese club.
Once again, the Red Devils will have to beat Juventus to Dias’s signature, while Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on a swoop for the defender.
Manchester United were 3-2 winners against Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Andreas Pereira.
