As fans would be aware, Manchester United have been heavily linked with Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, but this weekend, things might take a turn, and young Semedo will have a chance to place himself under the spotlight.
Reports from the English media are taken in Portugal as a confirmation of their own claims. In order to back up their info, Record also mentions the news of Mourinho sending his agents to scout for players during the Derby.
However, despite not talking about scouts, O Jogo too took an interest in this matter, and took an article from ESPN to claim how Manchester United and Nelson Semedo are not ideal for each other.
Semedo’s story has become a bigger one as compared to Victor’s, due to the claims made by the Portuguese Press, which suggest that the young starlet’s released fee has been increased from €60m to a whopping €80m.
Rival match, football’s biggest clubs to impress and the attention of the world, Nelson sure is in for a weekend that can change his footballing life forever.
