Reports in the English media believes that Benfica president, Luis Felipe Viera is in Manchester to personally seal the deal for Manchester united targets, Nelson Semedo and Victor Lindelof.
The pair have been identified as key targets for Jose Mourinho, who is keen to bolster his squad for an assault on the Premier League and Champions League next year.
Lindelof is reportedly close to a signing a deal with the Old Trafford outfit, while this twist of Semedo will add fire to the transfer speculation that came to light in January.
Vieira will be willing to listen to offers from Manchester in the region of £83m, that will need some beating down from Manchester United. United finished sixth in the league last season, which is nowhere near the level a club of their stature.
The likes of James Rodriguez, Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmmnna have been rumored to be wanted by the Portuguese tactician, but defensive reinforcements are needed to mount consistent performances for the club.
Semedo iis a marauding right back known for his blinding pace. He is known for his brilliance in attacking and defending, and is also wanted by the likes of Juventus and PSG, and he’s has made 63 appearances for the club made famous by Eusebio.
Lindelof is a classy centre back, known for his impeccable composure. His rise in the last 2 years has been geometric, becoming an established Swedish international and a regular in the heart of the defence of Rui Victoria’s team.
