Manchester United have made a €40m offer for Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Chelsea are also said to be interested in his services as Barcelona had rejected a major offer from Manchester City for his services at the end of last year.
The Old Trafford club have allegedly already informed the Barca midfielder of the interest and Barca are also aware of the tempting offer which has been made.
They claim Roberto is non-transferable, but with Mourinho and Conte both trying to secure his services, they could try to start a bidding war with both clubs trying to build their squads to challenge for the Premier League title.
Although Barca have reiterated that Roberto would like to stay in Spain, they did claim there is stil a long way to go this summer as many things can happen.
Mourinho previously claimed he could be forced into accepting three out of four signings this summer but with Inter Milan playing hardball over a fee for Ivan Perisic, it seems like Ed Woodward has turned his attention elsewhere to try and strengthen the squad ahead of a big season.
