According to reports, Manchester United could disrupt Liverpool’s plans by swooping in for £50million-rated midfielder Romeo Lavia. Chelsea is also interested in acquiring the talented young player who impressed during his time at Southampton last season.
Competition for Signature
- Liverpool emerged as favorites to sign Lavia, but now Manchester United and Chelsea have also expressed interest.
- A unnamed foreign club is also vying for Lavia’s signature.
The Liverpool Perspective
Despite the competition, Liverpool remains the front-runner for Lavia’s signature as they have apparently agreed on personal terms with the Belgian.
The Reds had a £35 million bid rejected and are preparing a second offer to seal the deal.
United’s Potential Obstacle
Manchester United may need to sell players before they can secure Lavia, as they are also pursuing Sofyan Amrabat from Morocco.
Other Transfer News
- United is close to signing striker Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta for £72 million.
- Liverpool and United are both interested in Lavia, who joined Southampton last summer and made 34 impressive appearances despite the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
Lavia’s future remains uncertain as Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea compete for his services. It will be interesting to see which club ultimately secures his signature.
