Manchester United are getting ready to table a big-money bid to bring Bernardo Silva to Old Trafford from Monaco this summer, according to fresh reports in France.

France Football magazine, as reported by GFFN, is claiming that the Red Devils are planning a bid to bring the 22-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.

The claim comes after another French media outlet, Canal+, reported earlier this week that Manchester United were planning a move for Silva and were in “advanced contact” over a possible move.

Silva was in fine form for Monaco this season as he helped them win the Ligue 1 title, scoring eight goals and making nine assists in 37 league games.

Jose Mourinho is likely to be keen to significantly bolster his squad in the summer transfer window after the Red Devils did not sign any new players in January.
