Manchester United to battle Tottenham for eight-time Ligue 1 winner

Manchester United and Tottenham will face off in the transfer market this summer.


PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has been linked with a move away from the French club at the end of the season.

And a report from Spanish outlet Fichajes claims that Manchester United and Tottenham are keen on signing him this summer.

No potential transfer fee is mentioned in the report and as Verratti is under contract at the Parc de Princes until 2026, PSG will likely demand a high sum for the experienced midfielder.

This will likely hand Manchester United the advantage over Spurs, especially as Man United look set for a top-four finish this season, whilst Tottenham may end up in the Europa Conference League.

Verratti is 30 years of age, but the likes of Luka Modric and Casemiro have shown players can still excel at the highest level well into their 30s.

Verratti has been a mainstay in PSG’s XI for many years now, notching over 400 appearances for them, in which time he has won eight Ligue 1 titles and countless domestic cups.

The Italian would make an excellent replacement for Christian Eriksen at the base of United’s midfield.
