Monaco's Bernardo Silva keen on Premier League, La Liga move
Silva, 22, is reportedly rated at £70 million by Monaco after becoming a key player for the club, helping them to the top of Ligue 1 and into the Champions League quarterfinals this season.
Chelsea and United have been linked with a move for the Portugal international, who was signed by Monaco on a five-and-a-half-year deal from Benfica for a little over £13 million in January 2015.
The Premier League duo are likely to face competition for Silva's signature but appear to have an advantage as the midfielder, who speaks fluent English, is keen on a switch across the Channel.
"For now, I'm feeling very well here in Monaco," Silva told CNN.
"It's my third season in France, but of course all the players want to play in the best leagues. Spain and England are the best, and of course I dream one day to be there."
Silva and Monaco continue their Champions League campaign on Wednesday when they take on Borussia Dortmund in their quarterfinal second leg, holding a 3-2 advantage from the first game.
