Manchester United finds themselves on the precipice of a Champions League exit, having conceded 14 goals in just five appearances.

The defensive frailties have prompted urgent calls for reinforcements, and Antonio Silva of Benfica emerges as a prime target.

Reports from Portugal in October hinted at Manchester United’s keen interest in securing the services of the 20-year-old Benfica defender.

With a hefty release clause of £86 million (100 million euros), Silva’s potential arrival could signify a significant defensive overhaul for the Red Devils.

The latest insights from Florian Plettenberg underscore Silva’s status as a top target for Manchester United in the upcoming summer of 2024.

The renowned Sky Sports reporter reveals that negotiations are underway to finalize the contractual details for Antonio Silva’s prospective move.

Silva played a pivotal role in Benfica’s triumph in the Liga Nos last season, contributing to a solid defensive record with just 20 goals conceded.

Featuring in 30 league starts, the young center-back played a crucial part in securing 18 clean sheets and even found the net three times.

In the current season, Benfica maintains its position at the top of the table after 11 games, with Silva contributing to five clean sheets in 10 appearances.

His impressive performances have not gone unnoticed, earning him a senior international debut for Portugal in November last year and subsequent participation in the FIFA World Cup, accumulating a total of 7 caps.

As Manchester United grapples with the declining form of Lindelof, Maguire, and Varane, coupled with Martinez’s injury concerns, the pursuit of a top, young central defender becomes imperative.

The question arises: Is the potential investment of £86 million justified for acquiring the defensive talents of Antonio Silva?
