Manchester United and Liverpool are battling to keep pace with Borussia Dortmund in the race for Freiburg midfielder Matthias Ginter.

The Germany U19 captain is a target for all three European heavyweights, with scouts regulars at Freiburg games in recent weeks.

Badische Zeitung says BVB hope to do business for €7 million and are confident Ginter favours them over interest from United and Liverpool.
