Newcastle, Juventus, Valencia, Manchester United and Betis have something in common

Benfica's right-back Miguel is in demand by so many clubs that I didn’t even list them all in the title. Even Liverpool is considering the Portuguese international.

Newcastle United and Real Betis have both inquired but there seem to be much bigger clubs interested.

Man United’s Kleberson is wanted by Portuguese champions Benfica. There may be a player/cash deal for Miguel, whose full name is Miguel Monteiro.

Miguel’s quickness was originally noticed after replacing Paulo Ferreira after Portugal’s first match loss to Greece in the 2004 European Cup. Originally a midfielder on the wing, he converted to playing in defense.

Miguel’s agent is Manuel Dimas who is a former Juventus player, there is a strong link there. Juve has scouted Miguel heavily and are serious about his purchase. Miguel himself seems keen on the move.

The wider the game gets, the more important it is to have players who can cover the space quickly. I would not be surprised if he came to England, his value has soared after an excellent season where he impressed former Benfica coach Giovanni Trapattoni to no end.
