Manchester United and Manchester City are going head-to-head for Real Madrid star Mesut Ozil. Ozil appears on his way out of Real after being singled out for harsh criticism by coach Jose Mourinho this season.

The Daily Star says German sources believe City have joined neighbours Manchester United in eyeing his situation at the Bernabeu.

The arrival at Real of Luka Modric from Spurs has put the squeeze on £30million-rated Ozil, 24.

The Germany playmaker was an unused substitute against City at the Etihad Stadium.
