Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on Benfica centre-back Antonio Silva ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old only made his debut in September last year but he has since established himself as one of the best central defenders.

Silva has caught the eye with his superb passing, strong tackling, ability to make clearances as well as winning regular duels.

He has the traits to become a world-class star in future and Record claim that United are closely watching him ahead of the summer.

The Red Devils are not alone, however, with Real Madrid, Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain also tracking the highly-rated teenager.

Paris Saint-Germain tried to sign him last summer for a cut-price fee but Benfica had no plans of parting ways with their asset.

Silva currently has a release clause worth €100 million in his contract and interested clubs may have to pay something close to that.

The youngster has just two caps for Portugal to date, but he is expected to cement his spot during the next set of international games.
