Man Utd in talks for €60m Benfica ace but face massive Juventus hurdle

Manchester United have already reportedly opened negotiations for Ruben Dias, although they face major competition from Juventus for the centre-back.

The Red Devils have already been linked with Portuguese pair Bruno Fernandes and Joao Felix — who play for Benfica and Sporting Lisbon respectively — but now reports in Portugal suggest they are closing in on a move for Dias.
