Manchester United have reportedly identified Bayern Munich star, Thiago Alcantara, as top transfer target this summer.
Throughout this week, the Spanish midfielder has been strongly linked with a summer move to Liverpool before the beginning of the next season.
The most recent reports suggest that the Spaniard, who has a year left on his contract at the Allianz Arena, is also keen on to make the switch to Anfield.
However, according to Bild, the Red Devils may rival Liverpool for the 29-year-old’s services.
Despite the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes and return to form of France international star, Paul Pogba, it has been reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stays keen on another creative player in the middle of the pitch.
Bayern Munich are allegedly willing to sell Thiago Alcantara for a fee in the region of £30m.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are reportedly ahead of Manchester United to secure services of Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.
The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a departure from Stadio Sao Paolo this summer and will allegedly be allowed to leave for €100m (£90.5m).
Man City and Man Utd have both been rumoured with the Senegal international, however, according to Tuttomercatoweb, the Merseyside Reds now are in the lead to get the deal done for Senegalese international defender.
