According to Mundo Deportivo, Manchester United have offered €35m for Benfica’s right-back Nélson Semedo.
It is reported that the Portuguese champions Benfica are holding out for a minimum of €40m for the fullback.
United face competition from city rivals Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and Barcelona for Semedo’s services.
A modern attacking full-back who is good with both feet, Semedo is also capable of playing at left-back.
United’s rumoured interest in Semedo is long-standing. Several reports emerged in January that the Portuguese international was a potential target for José Mourinho in the winter transfer window.
Sport Witness reports that Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira has previously held talks with United in England to negotiate Semedo’s transfer.
