PSG eyeing Benfica defender António Silva

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing an offer for SL Benfica defender António Silva, but the French giants are hesitant to meet the player’s €100 million release clause, according to Ekrem KONUR.

Silva, a highly-rated 20-year-old centre-back, has emerged as one of the most promising young defenders in Europe since breaking into Benfica’s first team last season. His performances have attracted interest from several top clubs, including Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, and Bayern Munich.

PSG are believed to be particularly keen on Silva and are ready to make an opening offer for the player. However, they are unwilling to pay the full €100 million release clause, which would make him the most expensive defender in history.

Benfica are under no pressure to sell Silva and are likely to hold out for a significant fee. The Portuguese club are aware of the interest in the player and are confident that they can command a premium price for him.

It remains to be seen whether PSG will be willing to meet Benfica’s asking price for Silva. The French club have a history of spending big on players, but they may be reluctant to break the bank for a defender.

The transfer saga is likely to drag on for some time, with several clubs vying for Silva’s signature. It will be interesting to see where the talented youngster ends up next season.
