Ajax defender Gregory Van Der Wiel is set to be the centre of a three way transfer war for his right back services across Europe.
Financially rejuvenated Barcelona have been linked with the 23 year old in the past, but issues surrounding a new contract for their Brazilian, Dani Alves has turned up the heat in their interest.

So could the lure of the Premiership prove too much for Van Der Wiel? It now emerges that both Manchester United and Manchester City are poised to place bids. The Dutchman has an excellent pedigree and would walk into either Premiership squad. Admittedly City are linked with everyone and their dog, but the reality is they have the money and their goal is to assemble a squad that will deliver Champions League football to Eastlands.
The player’s agent, Hakim Slimani has acknowledged the interest of all three clubs but has refused to confirm if a solid bid had been placed by anyone.
