It’s the hope that seems to kill our Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern. Just as they looked like pipping arch rivals Manchester City to fourth spot, a 3-2 loss to West Ham United last night put the onus back on the latter in the quest for all things Champions League.
While it is little consolation for the Red Devils in this evening, Anthony Martial notched a brace and further proved why he was a wonderful signing from Monaco over the course of last summer.
Now, if reports from Spanish daily Super Deporte (via the Daily Star) are to be believed, it’s easy to see why the club would return to France in order to land further recruits ahead of next season.
It is claimed that the Manchester giants are preparing to launch a mammoth bid to land highly rated Portuguese midfielder Bernado Silva.
The 21-year old has registered seven assists this season for the provincial outfit, emerging as one of their key players.

Where do Man United need to strengthen next season?
