The race between Manchester United and Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain’s Marco Verratti is growing daily. Both clubs are keen to add versatility to their midfield, and believe the Italian is key for the upcoming season.


José Mourinho have targeted both Nemanja Matic and Eric Dier this summer, however, Verratti’s latest interest in the Red Devils, make him a top priority for the club. The Express reported the PSG playmaker is open to a move to United, but still ranks Barcelona as the first choice.

United will need to splash around £60m in order to secure Verratti, and the Mirror stated PSG want Anthony Martial included in the deal. The 21-year-old Frenchman was a huge success during his time at Monaco, and would need to be part of the Verratti move.

While Barcelona are working towards keeping Neymar at the club, United are pushing forward to secure the midfielder, adding to Romelu Lukaku, their biggest signing this summer.

The Red Devils kick off their Premier League season at home against West Ham United, and hoping to add at least one more big player to the squad.
