Manchester United are in the best position to sign Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso, according to reports.
Lo Celso has emerged as one of Tottenham’s primary targets this summer, with the club already having one offer rejected by Real Betis.
The north London club will continue to pursue the midfielder, whose reported €75million release clause is proving inhibitive to any deal.
Spanish outlet Estadio Deportivo claimed on Friday that United ‘are very interested’ in signing the 23-year-old, particularly if Paul Pogba leaves this summer.
Diego Simeone recently told Argentina media that he likes Lo Celso, further stoking rumours of his possible arrival at the Wanda Metropolitano.
In Portugal, several newspapers are reporting that United, Spurs and Atletico are also the three clubs battling it out for Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes, highlighting the need for those sides to reinforce their midfield.
