Three-time European champions Manchester United are reportedly plotting a move for Benfica midfielder Gedson Fernandes.

This is according to the publication from Sky Sports which revealed that the Red Devils want to sign the 20-year-old Portuguese international in the current January transfer window which opened on Wednesday.

It was revealed that Manchester United are looking at a loan deal for the player with the option of signing him for just £34m permanently in the summer.

Gedson Fernandes won’t mind leaving Benfica in the current winter transfer window after he fell out with manager Bruno Lage.

He has been missing in recent Benfica games.

That has restricted him to just one assist in 12 games for Benfica this season.

Gedson Fernandes was an important member of the Benfica team that won the Portuguese league last season and he contributed three assists in 22 games in the last league campaign.

The young Portuguese midfielder made his debut for the national team in September 2018 and has made two appearances for the European champions.

He has a release clause of £84m in his current Benfica contract which will end in 2023.

Gedson Fernandes is one of the numerous midfield targets on the transfer shortlist at Manchester United.
