Manchester United are one of the interested clubs in S.C. Braga winger Rafa Silva, according to the International Business Times.

Rafa Silva is part of Portugal’s Euro 2016 squad and is attracting plenty of interest from clubs all over Europe, according to his agent, Antonio Araujo.

“Rafa’s style of play can help him adapt in the Premier League and there have been interest from clubs in England,” – Araujo told the IBTimes.

“Not only England, but from other countries too. We will do what is best for Rafa because he has a potential to become a great player.”

The Portuguese international scored 12 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions for Braga this season and was one of the best players in the Primeira Liga. He can play on both wings, but can do a job in midfield as well.

His versatility would be invaluable for United and he still has room for improvement as he’s only 23 years old. United desperately need a new right winger and Silva could be the solution.

If United want to sign him, they better act fast, because Silva’s value is likely to increase after this summer’s European Championship.

Signing him in the next couple of weeks would be a smart move as United could get him for less money and basically eliminate any chance of going into a bidding war with other clubs after The Euros.
