Rafa Silva: Eyed by Manchester United

Manchester United have reportedly sent scouts to monitor the progress of highly-rated Braga winger Rafa Silva.

The forward, who has scored seven goals as well as assisting seven more during a stellar campaign, has a £15.5million release clause in his current contract at Braga. While the club hope to get the player to sign a new deal at the end of the campaign, they do fear he’ll be snapped up by one of his suitors this summer.

Portuguese paper A Bola claims one of those clubs could be United, and they had a scout in attendance for the weekend’s match against Vitoria SC – a match which finished 3-3.

West Ham are also said to be admirers of the player, as well as Porto, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Monaco.

Silva has scored seven goals and laid on seven more for his teammates during an impressive campaign so far.
