On Tuesday morning, we’ve seen Italian newspaper La Repubblica claiming Manchester City are interested in the signing of Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, even though they’re yet to make an official bid for him.
Now it turns out that Pep Guardiola’s side may not be the only club in the city that are willing to sign the 27-year-old, since Manchester United seem to be in this race as well.
The claims were made by Corriere del Mezzogiorno journalist Ciro Troise today. He was speaking to Marte Sport Live about Napoli’s summer business, and mentioned a couple of players who could be leaving the Serie A side in this transfer window.
“His entourage has I got a couple of calls from Liverpool and Manchester United, but I struggle to think of high-figure hits,” said Troise (via Area Napoli).
It’s once again not said how much Napoli would demand for Zielinski’s transfer. The midfielder recently signed a contract extension with the club, and is now tied until 2024, so it’s clear they won’t let him leave for little. Transfermarkt values the player at €50m.
