Manchester City and Manchester United are chasing Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente.

The Daily Star says Llorente is a £30m target for Manchester United and deadly rivals City – after announcing he wants to quit Athletic Bilbao.

The Spain striker impressed with a goal in both legs of last season’s Europa League defeat of United.

And with Arsenal reluctant to part with Robin van Persie for less than £20m, Llorente, 27, is viewed as an ideal alternative for United and City.

Like the Dutch hitman, Llorente has just has one year left on his contract. But Bilbao insist they will not sell him for anything less than £30m.
