Manchester United, PSG Tracking Benfica’s Talented 20-Year-Old Defender

Paris Saint-Germain will be adding Lucas Beraldo this January transfer window. However, the capital club could overhaul its center-back position with younger talent.

Who else could the capital club be eyeing? Recent reports link the French giants to Lille OSC’s Leny Yaro. Nonetheless, he isn’t the only young defender the Ligue 1 side monitors for a possible pursuit.

According to Sportitalia’s Rudy Galetti, SL Benfica defender Antonio Silva remains in the sights of many top European clubs. Furthermore, he notes that Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain appreciate the defender.

PSG’s sporting advisor, Luis Campos, has a good relationship with Benfica after working on a deal that allowed the capital club to secure Gonçalo Ramos this past summer.

The 20-year-old defender, whose contract with Benfica expires in 2027, has a €100 million release clause. As a result, the Portuguese giants will look to cash in on the young defender, probably heading into the summer transfer window next year.
