Man Utd join Liverpool in race for Nicolo Barella
Manchester United are set to compete with Liverpool in the race to sign Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella this summer, Calciomercato.it claim.
The Italian has had a superb campaign for the Nerazzurri, bagging six goals and seven assists from 30 appearances for them.
He has no plans of leaving San Siro, but the Serie A giants could be tempted to cash in on him amid their financial problems.
The Nerazzurri need a big-money sale at the end of the campaign and Barella could be sacrificed to balance their books.
Liverpool are known to be admirers of the former Cagliari man, but they are set to face competition from Manchester United.
United are eyeing a new central midfielder next summer, but they are said to be reluctant to pay over the odds for any player.
Barella is currently valued at €100 million by Inter and it is left to be seen whether either club is ready to meet that figure.
