Silva joined Braga from Feirense in 2013 after making 41 appearances and scoring 10 goals, Silva is an attacking midfielder and the Red Devils would need the services of a mobile layer like Silva who also have a different dimension to his; that is the ability to score goals, something majority of the current United’s midfielder lacks.
With Michael Carrick and Morgan Schneiderlin already in their 30S, Silva would be a fantastic addition to the Red Devils and would be seen as a long term replacement for the aforementioned duo.
