According to Correio da Manhã, United are “ready to pay” to sign the Benfica ace as the race for his signature heats up.

As reported earlier, a lot of Premier League clubs are chasing the 21-year-old’s signature. Liverpool have been mentioned as possible suitors while Chelsea are also in the race.

However, his release clause is a mammoth €120million, which will be nearly impossible for the clubs to pay in January. Recent reports had even suggested that despite the price tag, United had edged ahead in the race.

While Benfica would like to hold on to the jewel in their crown, if a club were to pay the clause in full and should the player be willing to move, there is nothing the Portuguese giants can do.

Benfica are almost resigned to losing their midfield magician but there is a growing belief within the club that they will break their record set by João Félix’s departure in 2019, when they cashed in €126 million
