Manchester United could reportedly be offered the opportunity to seal the transfer of Eintracht Frankfurt forward Andre Silva this summer.
The Portugal international has been in excellent form in the Bundesliga this season, scoring 18 goals in 20 German top flight appearances so far.
Silva has looked like a promising player for a long time, but he endured a difficult few years at AC Milan and on loan at Sevilla before rediscovering his best form again this season.
Now it appears his agent Jorge Mendes is looking to orchestrate a possible £ 30 million transfer to Man Utd, according to the Sun.
Frankfurt are reportedly willing to raise funds to be able to afford to re-sign Luka Jovic from Real Madrid permanently after recovering him from the Spanish giants on loan, according to the report.
United would surely do well to seize this opportunity to sign a fit forward cheaply, with Silva perhaps an ideal long-term replacement for the aging Edinson Cavani.
The 25-year-old is also more of an all-time scorer than Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, who have seen his form drop this season.
Mendes has been involved in several Man United transfers in the past, so this could be a useful connection for the Red Devils.
