Then he made the switch to the Bundesliga side permanent in 2020.

The 38-cap Portugal international is enjoying a fine season this term with 22 goals and seven assists in 26 appearances.

He also picked up the player of the month for January.

Reports earlier in March suggested United and Atletico Madrid are very keen on the 6ft 1in frontman – especially with Edinson Cavani’s Old Trafford future in doubt – with the two clubs leading Arsenal in the race for his signature.

Silva is on Barcelona’s shortlist of strikers as the Nou Camp giants desperately look to sign an out-and-out striker.

Barca allowed Luis Suarez to leave last year.

Although they brought in Martin Braithwaite, a new No9 is a top priority.

Ronald Koeman has also been linked with Premier League pair Sergio Aguero and Alexandre Lacazette in recent weeks.

Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum may also be in line for a reunion with their former Netherlands national team boss.
