Man United eye move to sign £35m-rated 26-year-old Liverpool FC target – report
Man United could be set to battle Liverpool FC for the signature of Jorginho this summer, say reports
Manchester United will consider a summer transfer move to sign Jorginho from Napoli and battle with Liverpool FC for his signature, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the 26-year-old Italy international is a potential target for the Red Devils as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his midfield options ahead of next season.
The same report says that Jorginho is Liverpool FC’s preferred target to replace Emre Can, whose contract at Anfield expires at the end of the season.
However, it is also claimed that Liverpool FC know that they are likely to face competition for Jorginho’s signature in the summer transfer window.
The midfielder has been in solid form for Napoli so far this season, scoring two goals and making four assists in 23 Serie A games for the Italian club.
Manchester United are thought to have made signing a midfielder a priority this summer as Michael Carrick prepares to retire and with Marouane Fellaini’s future at the club unclear.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their crunch clash against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night.
The Red Devils are currently in second place, and they will do battle with rivals Liverpool FC at Old Trafford on 10 March.
