According to reports, Ole Gunnar Solskjer’a team Manchester United are set to lose the transfer ‘war’ to fellow Premier League heavyweight Manchester City for Lyon star Tanguy Ndombele.
The two City rivals are ready to rival one another once more in the coming summer window.
Aside being big-rivals on the field, they are bitter rivals off it – with the Manchester giants wielding impressive figures of wealth in the bank.
Recently, a number of players have been heavily linked to both sides with differing outcomes.
The Red Devils won the bidding war for Brazil international midfielder Fred and Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez, though it seems City have been more successful with both deals.
And the reigning Premier League champions also completed a deal for Germany international midfield maestro Ilkay Gundogan, who had a move to Old Trafford fall through in 2015.
With both rival clubs vying to dominate the City of Manchester, the sides are set to battle once again in the summer window.
The starlet has been an asset to the team this term, with his worth increasing to over £50 million.
And as per the Daily Express, both the Red Devils and the City are interested in signing the France international this summer window.
But the story goes on to state that Spanish boss Pep Guardiola is the more attractive bait for him right now.
The 22-year-old midfielder would be an ideal heir for Brazil international Fernandinho, who will clock 34 years of age later in May, who the former Barcelona coach has searched everywhere to replace.
Both Italy international midfielder Jorginho and South American Fred were strongly linked to Manchester City transfers but joined other teams.
The Premier League champions are only a point clear at the summit of the English to tier after Mersyside giants Liverpool beat Burnley earlier in the day.
On the other hand, United’s next match is scheduled to be against Wolves, as both sides prepare to play in the FA Cup quarter finals. When you’re taking a break from betting you can try some casino fun. Fans interested in some gambling tips can always check bonusrequired.com.
