Liverpool’s teenage defensive target not interested in PL move, wants Real Madrid transfer


Emerging Benfica defender Antonio Silva seems unswayed by the reported interest from Premier League giants Liverpool and Manchester United.

According to Sport Witness (h/t Liverpool Echo), the 19-year-old centre-back has his sights set on Real Madrid instead.

While acknowledging Liverpool and United’s pursuit, Andre Silva is said to not be “dazzled” by a potential move to England. The teenager sees Real as Europe’s biggest club and his preferred destination.

Silva, breaking through Benfica’s ranks this season, seems in no hurry to bid his current club farewell. His patience has cast a reassuring calm over Benfica, ensuring they aren’t losing their prized possession anytime soon.

The Portuguese club values Silva at €88 million thanks to his enormous potential. Triggering his massive release clause would be necessary for any club to sign him.

Liverpool and United have kept a watchful eye on Silva, recognizing his exceptional skills. However, convincing this level-headed prodigy might prove to be a challenge, given his unwavering dream of donning the iconic Real Madrid jersey.

Silva appears focused on continuing his development at Benfica rather than being distracted by speculation. Both his mentality and price tag suggest he won’t move abroad soon.

While Premier League titans circle around him, Silva’s loyalty lies with Benfica. Unless Real Madrid express a formal interest, prying this gifted teenager away from Portugal next summer appears to be a distant possibility.
