Florentino Luis’ agent claims there is interest from England for Man United-linked star


Agent of Manchester United-linked Florentino Luis has recently discussed interest in his client.

Benfica youth

Florentino Luis has been apart of Benfica’s youth system since the age of 10, after joining the Portuguese powerhouse from Real SC Formação.

Florentino has since gone on to work his way up As Águias’ ranks, notching 69 appearances for their B-team.

After impressing at a youth level, the now 20-year-old was promoted to Benfica’s senior side back in February of 2019.

And the defensive-minded midfielder has gone on to garner 29 appearances across all competitions for the Primeira Liga giants, including two Champions League outings this term.

As well as impressing at a club level, Florentino has also been a mainstay in the Portuguese national side’s youth setup for many years.

In total, the Benfica youth has racked up 71 appearances for Portugal between under-15 and under-21 level.

Florentino’s agent speaks out

And after showcasing his potential and talent for Benfica, Florentino is seemingly attracting interest from some of Europe’s heavy-hitters.

The likes of AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen and Manchester United are said to be keeping an eye on the youngster with Goal claiming the latter are among those believed to be mulling over a formal approach ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

ESPN also claim that Bruno Carvalho Santos, the Benfica midfielder’s agent, met with Man United officials in January and he has been fielding enquiries for the past few months.

Now, as mentioned above, Florentino’s agent has recently been discussing interest in his client.

Speaking to ESPN, Santos stated that there is a lot of interest in his client, before claiming there is competition for Florentino’s services from clubs in England, Spain and Germany:

“Florentino is one of the highest rated young defensive midfielders in Europe, so there is a lot of interest in him at the moment.

“There has been a lot of talk about Milan, but I can tell you that there is a lot of competition for his services, with clubs in England, Germany and Spain also following him closely.”
