Liverpool and Man United face battle to land Italian

verratti.jpgNothing is simple in the Football Transfer Tavern and it seems that according to talkSPORT that is not set to change anytime soon. Both Liverpool and Manchester United are casting an eye on Italian international Marco Verratti and it seems Real Madrid want a little piece of that action too.

The Spanish giants have been monitoring the 20-year-old who is seen as one of the hottest prospects around at the minute and are willing to go toe-to-toe and fight both Premier League teams in order to land the player.

Currently on the books at mega wealthy Paris Saint-Germain, the midfielder will prove challenging to land as the Parisian club do not need to sell and should they even entertain letting their star man go, it would take a bid of at least £30 million for them to even consider it.

Seen by officials at Real as a long-term successor to midfield pass master Xabi Alonso, Verratti has been on the radar of Los Blancos for some time. Both United and Liverpool also want the midfielder, yet it is doubtful if Liverpool could match the financial power of either Jose Mourinho’s men or Manchester United, not to mention possessing the lure of Champions League football.

Can either of the English pair land Verratti this summer? Rate this rumour below.
