Jorge Mendes hoping to supply £30m star a switch to Manchester United
According to reports, Manchester United could be offered the chance to seal Eintracht-Frankfurt striker Andre Silva’s transfer this summer.
The Portuguese international was in excellent form in the Bundesliga this season and has so far scored 18 goals in 20 games in the German top division.
Silva looked promising for a long time, but had to endure some difficult years at AC Milan and a loan deal with Sevilla before regaining his best form this season.
Now it appears that his agent Jorge Mendes is planning a possible £ 30 million transfer to Man Utd, according to Sun.
Frankfurt reportedly want to raise funds to be able to afford to permanently sign Luka Jovic from Real Madrid after taking him back from the loaned Spanish giants, according to the report.
United would certainly do well to take this opportunity to sign a cheap in-shape striker, with Silva potentially being an ideal long-term replacement for the aging Edinson Cavani.

The 25-year-old is also more of an all-out goalscorer than Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, who both lost their form this season.
Mendes has been involved in a number of Man United transfers in the past so this could be a useful link for the Red Devils.
