Man Utd plot £250M triple raid on Portuguese transfer market

Manchester United are planning a triple raid on the Portuguese transfer market.

The Mirror says manager-in-waiting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign the best young talent rather than older experienced players.

It's why he has ordered regular updates on Benfica pair Joao Felix, 19, and Ruben Dias, 21, plus Sporting Lisbon's 24-year-old Bruno Fernandes.

But the top clubs in Europe including Manchester City, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid also covet the trio who are all regular internationals for their country.

It's why forward Felix has a £105million release clause, midfielder Fernandes' buy-out cost is £95million while Dias has a value of £50million.

That adds up to a hefty £250million if a club wanted to secure all three.
