The Daily Record claims that United are wary of missing out on the 21-year-old, who has scored nine goals in 14 appearances this season, and are ready to compete with City, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Silva only made his first-team debut in January but has since signed a new deal with a €60 million (£51m) release clause.

The Portugal international could be viewed as a potential long-term replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose contract expires at the end of the season.

The Swede has struggled to find his best form in recent weeks, scoring just three goals in his last 12 games.
