Silva, 22, has emerged as one of Europe’s top playmakers this season after helping Monaco win their first Ligue 1 title since 2000.
And his talents have not gone unnoticed with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona apparently interested in signing him this summer.
Le 10 Sport claimed this month that Jose Mourinho is determined to bring the Portugal international to Old Trafford as he looks to bolster his ranks ahead of next season.
And another French outlet Canal+ have offered a fresh update on his potential departure from Monaco this summer by suggesting that United are now in pole position to sign Silva.

Manchester United are in pole position to sign Monaco star Bernardo Silva.
It is said Manchester United have completed the necessary groundwork after holding informal discussions between relevant parities in recent weeks.
This will come as a blow to Barcelona and Real Madrid, who are always on the lookout for top talent.
While Real want to bring the midfielder to the Bernabeu to replace James Rodriguez, who looks destined to leave this summer.

And following Monaco's title-clinching victory against St Etienne, Silva opened up about his future by insisting "everything is possible".
"I read the papers, but for now there is nothing concrete. I already said that I felt good in Monaco, but everything is possible," Silva said.
Silva has made 57 appearances across all competitions for Monaco this season and has scored 11 goals.
He is contracted to the club until the summer of 2020.
