The Red Devils are a team which can be as competitive as they come in the transfer market during and outside the window and it is no surprise that they often carry a trick or two up their sleeves in order to get the target players they desire.
Another such case is a secret first option they carry to sign Bernardo Silva ahead of other interested clubs namely Chelsea, Manchester City, Real Madrid and The Catalans, according to reports in France coming from news outlet Le 10 Sport.
The winger currently plays for Monaco, a side he joined in 2015 for a fee of £12.75 million and has been netting up impressive performances thus attracting attention for a big move in the summer.
Both Mourinho and Silva have a common agent, Jorge Mendes which adds an extra advantage in United’s favour, who reportedly have a set fee, around £70 million, which would see them bring in the player to the Theatre of Dreams.
However, competition from Spanish big boys Barca and Real Madrid adds a little fuel to this fire transfer deal.
The player has an eye for the back of the net and contains a habit of popping up at the right time to score important goals for the Ligue 1 side, one of them being an 87th minute equalizer against CSKA Moscow in the group stages of the Champions League.
Apart from that, his most standout effort has come against PSG which arrived in the 92nd minute as an equalizer to take away two points over title rivals.
