Manchester United scout star with €100m release clause, Chelsea star may join Aston Villa, and more
It was a busy weekend of Premier League action, with Manchester United's victory over Manchester City the pick of the bunch. Here are today's Premier League rumours and gossip.
Manchester United have reportedly been scouting a star with a €100m release clause.
Sports Witness suggest that United scouts were sent to watch Boavista and Benfica play in Portugal, with Rúben Dias the reported target.
Dias has been linked with United heavily in the past, and the defender apparently has a €100m release clause to ward off potential suitors.
Manchester United of course spent a reported £85m on Harry Maguire in the summer, so it remains to be seen whether they would spend another large fee on a defensive recruit.
