Mourinho Ready to Launch Assault to Sign £70million Star for Red Devils

Pilib de Brun

Manchester United have reportedly launched a €35m (£30.6m, $39.2m) bid to secure the services of Nelson Semedo from Benfica.

The 23-year-old right-back's future at Benfica has been subject to fresh speculation this summer, with a number of clubs believed to be interested in signing him.

"I have enjoyed my time at Benfica enormously and I have learned a lot there".

Lindelof joined Benfica from home-town club Vasteras SK in 2012 and won three Portuguese league titles and two Portuguese Cups during his time in Lisbon.

In turn, Mourinho and company sealed a spot in the Champions League.

Mourinho also has England pair Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at his disposal, along with Argentina worldwide Marcos Rojo, while Dutch utility man Daley Blind has slotted into central defence on occasion.

United, who will also play Valerenga and Sampdoria at the start of August, will return to the Champions League next season after winning the Europa League and Ferguson says it is important for Jose Mourinho's side to face the best in the world ahead of the new campaign.

'It's very good for the younger players to come into this type of competition in terms of preparing to be a Manchester United player.

"He told me about the club and everything around it". I'm here to play football and perform as well as possible for Manchester United.

Victor Lindelof has insisted that he is not bothered by his £31m transfer fee after arriving at Manchester United last week.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is one name linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Talisca sparked a media storm after revealing that United boss Jose Mourinho wants him.

"I had a good season and, as I said, his love is old and I like his work too".
