United linked with yet another World Cup star

Enzo PerezReports in the Metro this morning suggest Manchester United have launched a £7million offer for Benfica star, Enzo Perez.

Perez was one of the stars of the show in last nights semi-final between LvG’s Netherlands and Perez’s Argentina.

The Red Devils are hoping to finalize the deal before the World Cup ends this weekend, in which Perez is set to be starting in the final for Argentina.

The 28-year-old had a brilliant season with Portuguese side Benfica and is set to leave during the summer with United being one of several clubs interested in his services.

Valencia and Lazio have previously had offers turned down but United are apparently convinced they will be able to land their man for a reported £7million as they wait for the Primeira outfit to sanction negotiations.

Perez made 46 appearances for Benfica last season, scoring five goals and has had a huge impact on his country’s successful run to the World Cup final on Sunday.

RedRants opinion?

It seems a little convenient (yet again) how reports surface about our interest in a player the morning after a fantastic performance. At 28 he would need to be the finished article but, on last night’s performance alone, £7m would appear to be a bargain if he can deliver those performances on a consistent basis.

Will we sign Perez? Is he really a target? I’m not convinced.
