Portuguese midfielder Rafa Silva is said to have attracted attention from more than one club for a potential transfer. Portuguese newspaper A Bola reports that AS Monaco have joined the race for the player and they sent their scouts to watch the player in the match against Braga and Vitoria Guimaraes last Sunday.
According to the paper, an ‘auction’ will be held for the 22 year old player as Manchester United, Everton, Porto and Monaco are all looking to add the player into their squad.
While the player’s release clause includes a amount of 20 million Euros, his contract with Braga expires in 2019.
Although there are many clubs interested in the player, one can guess Silva’s destination in the summer if Jose Mourinho is confirmed as the new boss in Old Trafford. The link between the two is the super agent Jorge Mendes, who is also a representative for Silva and as such he officially owns 50% of the player’s economic rights.
