Manchester City are considering making an offer for Benfica’s defensive midfielder Florentino Luis.
The 19-year-old defensive midfielder has just broken into the first team but already has a release clause of €60m. Benfica are hoping that he will sign a new contract soon and to increase the clause to over €100m.
The Lisbon-born youngster has been with Benfica since 2010 and progressed through the youth teams at the club before making his debut on 10 February this year.
Paris St-Germain have already had one bid turned down for a player who has represented Portugal at U15, U16, U17, U19 and U20 level.
City have had scouts watching the 19-year-old and see him as a possible long-term replacement for Fernandinho, who is 33. Luis’s current contract with Benfica runs to 2023.
In January City signed another young defensive midfielder, Ante Palaversa, from Hajduk Split for £7m.
