Benfica director Rui Costa has hinted that star defender Ruben Dias won’t leave the club during the upcoming winter transfer window.
According to him via his latest interview as monitored by Birmingham Mail, Ruben Dias won’t leave the club until the end of the current season at least.
Ruben Dias has been attracting the interest of several Premier League teams including Manchester United.
The Red Devils were also linked with a summer move for the Portuguese international center-back rated at around £60m.
Manchester United are not the only Premier League club in the hunt for his signature with the likes of Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers also interested in his services.

Ruben Dias has made 102 appearances for Benfica since he broke into the first team and the defender is now a regular member of the Portuguese national team.
The young defender is a key transfer target for Premier League champions Manchester City who are in urgent need of defensive reinforcements ahead of the January transfer market.
Manchester City have suffered a great deal this season on the defensive front mainly due to the injury to first choice centre back Aymeric Laporte who’s not expected back until February at least.
