The Greek international’s current contract has a £51.2m release clause, but according to rumors from Portugal today, he can join United for just £8.5m.
Man United is focused on attracting the 29-year-old shot-stopper, according to a story published by O Jogo (news image given below).
According to the Porto-based news outlet, Benfica is willing to sell the experienced goalkeeper for as little as 10 million euros (£8.5 million).
Vlachodimos preserved 21 clean sheets in 34 league games last season, conceding only 20 goals as the Eagles won the championship.
This season, he played the entire 90-minute Supertaca Candido de Oliveira as Benfica defeated archrivals Porto 2-0.
However, matters between the manager and the player soured following the opening Primera Liga defeat to Boavista, and he is currently on the market.
The Liga Nos heavyweights paid £8.5m to sign Trubin from Shakhtar and want the same sum from United, who want Vlachodimos to replace Dean Henderson as backup goalkeeper to Andre Onana.
Henderson was never given a fair chance at Manchester United, and the 26-year-old must depart to play regular first-team games elsewhere.
