Benfica ward Manchester United off target who could replace David de Gea

He has spoken out amid speculation that Manchester United are interested in the 18-year-old Belgian prodigy.

Svilar surpassed Iker Casillas to become the youngest goalkeeper in Champions League history when he played against United last month in Lisbon.

Reports emerged earlier this week suggesting that Jose Mourinho had ‘reserved’ Svilar for United and it’s understood that Sir Bobby Charlton spoke with Vieira after the side’s match at Old Trafford.

“We have followed him since he was 15,” Vieira told BTV when asked about Svilar.

“We’ve already had an offer for him, four times what we paid and where we would keep him for another two years.

“It’s important to note, Svilar is 18 and only focused on Benfica. He won’t leave.”
