Liverpool and Manchester United certainly enjoy one of the greatest rivalries on the pitch, and it’s been claimed they’re ready to battle off the pitch this summer.
According to Brazilian media outlet Zero Hora, Liverpool and Manchester United are interested in signing Gremio star Luan. Interest is informal at this stage, but Gremio are working to let clubs know what their demands would be.
The Brazilian club want €45m for Luan if any club wants to sign the player this summer, and €30m should he leave the club in January next year.
It is reported Luan has a release clause of €80m for foreign clubs, but it’s very unlikely any club would want to pay such an amount for him at the moment.
Luan has been in impressive form at the Rio Olympics with three goals and two assists to his name in five games.
The Premier League sides could face competition from Juventus, who are also reportedly interested in the 23-year-old.
Earlier, Spanish newspaper Sport claimed Liverpool’s interest in Luan, but Gremio reportedly refused to negotiate with the Merseyside club.
