That the Red Devils need a central midfielder in the summer is known to all and they’ve been linked with several players from Portuguese league in the last 12 months, so naturally with the presence of Moyes in the stands, Portugal press are speculating whom Moyes must have scouted.
Already we reported yesterday that O JOGO feels Moyes have must watched Benfica duo – Nico Gaitan and Ezequiel Garay and Porto defender Mangala, today the same newspaper reports that Moyes have scouted Argentine midfielder Enzo Perez and he’s reportedly interested in signing him.
Moyes already had positive scout reports on Perez but he wanted to see him in action from a perspective he doesn’t get from watching in videos.
Earlier this season CSKA Moscow bid €15 million for the 28-year-old but that’s way below what Benfica want for Perez and CSKA were told that they’d only sell for his buyout clause of €30m.
It is believed Perez will make the Argentinian World Cup squad so United want to wrap up the deal before the World Cup so his market value doesn’t increase. So, Moyes has been urged to pay his buyout clauses, if he is indeed serious about landing him.
