Ruben Dias news

United eyeing winter move for Dias?


Manchester United are reportedly planning an approach to sign Benfica’s Ruben Dias when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Red Devils landed the services of Harry Maguire from Leicester City in a deal worth £80m last summer and the Englishman has already cemented his place as a regular at the heart of the defence.

Still, it appears that the club are aiming to add more quality in the central defensive deparment and Record claims that they may come up with an approach for Dias in January.

Dias currently has a £59m release clause on his contract with Benfica but reports have emerged that the Portuguese giants will renew his deal in the coming weeks to increase that value to £79m.

Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe have partnered Maguire in central defence this term and it seems that the Red Devils are still searching for a long-term partner for the England international.

Bruno Fernandes news

United close to Fernandes deal?


Sporting Lisbon are reportedly expecting an approach from Manchester United to secure the services of Bruno Fernandes before the Premier League transfer deadline.

The Portuguese has been linked with the likes of United, Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid over the past month but the former have been deemed as favourites to land his signature.

According to AS, the Primeira Liga giants are anticipating an offer from the Red Devils for the midfielder, considering there are only four days remaining before the transfer window closes in England.

Fernandes was hugely successful with Sporting last term and he contributed a stellar tally of 32 goals and 18 assists for the club while largely featuring in the centre of the park.

Meanwhile, United’s ongoing pursuit of Paulo Dybala has seemingly reached a dead end with the Juventus star reluctant to make the move to Old Trafford due to the lack of Champions League football.

Romelu Lukaku has been predicted to make the move to the Bianconeri as part of a swap deal involving Dybala and it remains to be seen whether the Serie A holders offer another player in exchange for the Belgian.
