United could move to sign $70.5m midfielder, potential change of image for Mourinho
Manchester United are still looking to win the race to sign promising midfielder Gedson Fernandes from Benfica, according to reports in the Portuguese media.
Jose Mourinho has not always been known for his ability to develop young players, but times are changing and the United manager may well be in pursuit of youthful talent this summer.
As per reports, the Red Devils have shown an interest in signing 19-year-old talent Fernandes, who has a massive release clause of $70.5million (€60million) in his contract.
Manchester United are definitely not the only big club who have spotted the potential of the gifted midfielder, with the likes of AS Roma and Juventus also claimed to be keeping tabs on the teenager.
The youngster’s contract at Benfica will not expire until June 2023, and therefore, the Portuguese side are likely to demand a huge offer in order to sell him to any suitor around Europe.https://www.fanchesterunited.com/united-to-move-in-for-70-5m/
