Super-agent Jorge Mendes is said to have held a secret meeting with Real Madrid over Manchester United target, Bernardo Silva. The Portuguese star is a target for United and other top European teams.
The Red Devils are looking for midfielders that can partner Paul Pogba when Michael Carrick leaves Old Trafford this summer. Jose Mourinho had hoped to sign him, to make his team more competitive ahead of a return to the UEFA Champions League.
But reports from Spain is claiming the Red Devils may lose out signing the player after all. Per the source, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez asked super-agent Mendes for suggestion about who he should bring to Madrid this summer, and he recommended Bernardo Silva.
The midfielder has made a telling contribution to the rise of AS Monaco this season, as they top the French Ligue 1 and have qualified for the semifinal of the Champions League. He has scored 9 goals and provided 8 assists for his team mates in all competition this season.
He still has three and half years to run on his current contract, and would not leave Monaco for a small fee.
