What Manchester United fans and well, pretty much every other fanbase in the Football Transfer Tavern has grown used to in recent times is the fact that Chelsea reign supreme.
Having picked up their fourth Premier League title this term, the Blues are a machine that look pretty unstoppable at the minute and this is getting our resident Red Devils fanatics down because not so long ago, it was them under Sir Alex Ferguson that looked pretty much unbeatable as well.
Nevertheless, the signs are that Louis van Gaal now has United back on the road to recovery after the ill-fated reign of David Moyes and given the fact they managed to sign the likes of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao last summer despite their below-par seasons shows the Red Devils are still a force to be reckoned with in the transfer market.
With hundreds of names flying about the bar on a daily basis, the transfer news is coming to the boil nicely so far this summer with Sami Khedira having chosen Juventus as his next club yesterday afternoon.
With the futures of Memphis Depay, James Milner and Danny Ings also already tied up, the punters are thirsty for more done deals.
Given the sheer status of Chelsea and United as two of the world’s biggest clubs, it comes as no surprise that in some cases, the two English superpowers are seemingly trailing after the same names this summer transfer window.
Here we have identified five transfer targets who both the Blues and Red Devils will be fighting over this summer.
