- Manchester United looks for a new impetus in the summer transfer window

- Now the Red Devils see a move for Benfica star Ruben Dias this summer
Manchester United is now focusing on a summer move for Benfica & # 39; s Ruben Dias after missing transfer goal Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is planning to redecorate his United Squad this summer after finishing sixth in the Premier League, missing the Champions League football next season.
But according to the Mirror, Napoli plays hardball with United over Koulibaly after hitting a £ 150 million price tag on the 27-year-old middle back.

United submitted a £ 85 million bid for Koulibaly last week, but that was rejected by the Series A outfit before they also rejected a £ 90 million bid from Real Madrid because they wanted to keep their star defender.
With Napoli holding firm, the Red Devils have now turned their attention to signing Benfica defender Ruben Dias.
Signing Dias would be a much cheaper alternative and would fit in with Solskjaer's transfer strategy to buy younger players.

The Benfica middle ridge is only 22 years old – five years younger than Koulibaly – and would cost a considerable amount less.
Allegedly Benfica are willing to let Dias leave this summer if they receive a payment of around £ 60 million.
United has also shown an interest in Ajax prodigy Matthijs de Ligt after guiding the Eredivisie to the semifinals of the Champions League.
But they are facing fierce competition this summer from people like Barcelona and Liverpool for his signature.
