Manchester United’s big money target could set for January transfer


Manchester United target Marco Verratti could be set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this January with Spanish La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid and German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich both linked with a move for the young Italian.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport have broke the news that the two footballing giants are in the hunt for the highly-rated Verratti.

However, a transfer would not be cheap.  The report states that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich both saw their €50 million bids rejected for the 22-year old.

The German club ended up signing Real Madrid’s Xabi Alonso instead, whilst Real Madrid signed Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich.

A departure for Verratti seemed out of the question back then but the midfielder continues to be linked with a move away from the French champions.

Le 10 Sport‘s information says that both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are to come back in for the 10-time Italian international again in January.

Manchester United were still linked with Verratti in September but face a tough battle if they’re to beat Real Madrid and Bayern Munich to his signature, and that is only if he leaves Paris Saint-Germain.

Verratti has been a regular in the PSG side since arriving from Italian Serie A club Pescara in 2012.  He scored his first goal for the club against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season.
