Man Utd boss Ferguson ready to beat Liverpool for Shaqiri

Manchester United are chasing FC BaselXherdan Shaqiri. The Daily Star says United have sounded out his agent Ulisse Savini about a possible £10m switch to the Premier League champions.

Shaqiri, 20, has been likened to Barcelona star Lionel Messi following a string of impressive displays for Basel and Switzerland.

Liverpool have been tracking Shaqiri since Roy Hodgson was boss and Anfield director of football Damien Comolli has watched him several times.

Fergie is confident of landing him and can offer bigger wages, but Shaqiri is keen to help Basel progress in the Champions League knockout stages.
