Manchester United are set to face competition from Arsenal in the race to sign Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi this summer.

The centre-back joined the Eagles from Chelsea two years ago and he has since developed into a consistent performer.

Guehi is set to pursue a bigger challenge this summer and the Daily Mail claim that both United and Arsenal want him.

The Gunners currently have the advantage of Champions League football but United could soon join them in the competition.

The Red Devils require just one point to finish in the top four this season.

Hence, it could end up as a bidding war for the central defender, who has his sights on winning trophies in his career.

Palace will reportedly look for £50 million for their prized asset but the fee could be less, based on the level of interest.

Chelsea have a first refusal option on Guehi but they are likely to prefer the 20 per cent sell-on clause in his contract.
