According to Ovacion,
Perez, 28, won four trophies with Benfica last season, while being named Primeira Liga Player of the Year too. He’s long been linked with the Red Devils in the past, and this time it does appear manager Louis Van Gaal could line up a bid in the shape of M for his services, but Perez is held in high regard by the Portuguese outfit.
The Argentinean’s versatility in the midfield makes him a useful player under Van Gaal, but Benfica won’t let him go for cheap. Perez is regarded as a key component in the team, with manager Jorge Jesus regarding him as an irreplaceable player and the brain of the Benfica side.
