Chelsea and Man United to go head to head for £35million signing

Big money move
Chelsea are set to battle Manchester United for a £35million starlet in the coming weeks as the player’s move to Barcelona stalls.
That player comes in the form of Gremio midfielder Artur who looked set to make the move to Barcelona in the current window.
Arthur had even been pictured in a Barcelona shirt, a picture that quickly circulated social media and Gremio were not happy in the slightest.
It looked as though a £35million deal had been sealed to take him to the Camp Nou but that move could now be off.
That is because the club signed Philippe Coutinho last week and now reports claim the club will now attempt to balance the books before a move.
That means that the deal has stalled and both Chelsea and Manchester United are looking to hijack a potential deal.
While Chelsea look the least likely due to their already packed midfield, Man United’s squad is thinner in that regard.
Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini are both set to leave the club in the summer which could leave a squad berth available. A Premier League club will reportedly be able to sign the 21-year-old for a fee in the region of £30m – £35m.
Arsenal and Manchester City are also said to be watching the players development but it is unlikely they will make moves this month.

Man United blow: Tottenham rival Red Devils for PSG star
While the pursuit of Arthur looks to be positive, they have been dealt a blow in another deal.
That is because the club are currently being rivalled by Tottenham for a Paris Saint-Germain star.
That could certainly cause complications for the Red Devils and could even see them have to pay more.
