Man United match £15.5m release clause of Jose Mourinho favourite

mourinhoooo!Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left intrigued by reports that brought an early close to their game of darts, as it’s suggested the club has made a move for a favourite of Jose Mourinho.

ITA Sport Press state that Manchester United have made a move for SC Braga’s talented Portuguese international Rafa Silva, who former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is a staunch admirer of.

Mourinho is widely expected to succeed an underperforming Louis Van Gaal this summer and the signing of Rafa Silva is likely to have been influenced by the Portuguese boss himself, who’s keen to sign his compatriot.

22-year-old Silva is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in Portuguese football and he’s attracted a lot of attention, although United seem to have taken a lead in the race for his services by matching the release clause of £15.5m in his contract.

Silva could become one of the first signings for Mourinho under his reign at Manchester United, should he get the job, and our landlord believes many will follow as they overhaul their struggling side.

United fans, is this a signing that excites you? Let us know in the comments below!
