Manchester United and Man City to compete for Serie A defender and more transfer rumours

Manchester United and Man City are to battle for promising Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla, according to reports.

Both Manchester clubs have had their problems at the back this season and have been tipped to strengthen in summer, with the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Caglar Soyuncu being touted.

According to Corriere dello Sport, via SportWitness,City and United have now become interested in Kumubulla – who is helping Verona to a brilliant season.

Hellas haven’t lost in the last eight games since the 20-year-old returned from injury and he played a major part in helping the team defeat Juventus on Saturday, lifting them to sixth in the table.

However, Inter, Bayern Munich and Everton are also said to be interested and it’s reported that if Kumbulla continues to play like he is then his price is sure to rise.

City see centre-back as a priority position in the summer after deciding against adding one in the January transfer window, despite their problems with injuries to Aymeric Laporte, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi.

United, meanwhile, do not see the centre of defence as a priority following the addition of Harry Maguire last summer.

Elsewhere, Erling Braut Haaland is reportedly under consideration as a possible long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero at City.

It is claimed by  90min.com   that City are putting plans in place for life without Aguero and Haaland, whose father Alf-Inge played for the Blues, is on their radar.

Haaland has scored eight goals in five appearances for Borussia Dortmund in 2020 after joining the German club from RB Salzburg. United had opted against signing the Norwegian after they refused to agree to a buyout clause and percentage of future sales.

Finally, United reportedly sent scouts to watch Fenerbahce forward Vedat Muriqi in action at the weekend.

Turkish-Football claim that United, Burnley and Lazio were all present at the 1-1 draw between Fenerbahce and Alanyaspor, amid an interest in the £30million rated Muriqi.
