Manchester United are ready to battle it out with Chelsea FC to sign Aaron Ramsey in the summer transfer window, according to a report.

The Star on Sunday, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Wales international is attracting interest from Chelsea FC and Manchester United.

The same article states that the Red Devils are keen to sign the versatile midfielder, who will be a free agent at the end of the 2018-19 Premier League season.

However, Jose Mourinho’s side will face competition from Chelsea FC, Juventus, AC Milan and Valencia to sign the Welsh star to bolster their midfield options, says the article.

According to the same story, Ramsey will become a free agent in the summer after Arsenal decided to pull out off contract negotiations with the former Cardiff City star.

The 27-year-old was in discussions with the north London side and the talks appeared to progress as the Gunners looked to avoid losing another talent on a free transfer.

However, Arsenal are under new leadership following changes at boardroom and head coach level in the past few months to usher in a new era at the Emirates Stadium.

Ramsey has started six of their 10 games in the Premier League this term, while the Arsenal star has made a further four appearances from the bench.

The Arsenal number eight has scored one goal and has made three assists in 524 minutes of Premier League football in the current campaign.

The Gunners saw their winning run come to an end on Sunday following a 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in a pulsating London derby.

Arsenal equalised thanks to Granit Xhaka’s wonder goal after Luka Milivojevic had broken the deadlock for the hosts.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted his fifth goal in three Premier League games with 29 minutes to go before Milivojevic equalised from the penalty spot.
