Manchester United and Chelsea are chasing Everton superkid Ross Barkley. The Sunday Express says Old Trafford boss David Moyes helped nurture Barkley's outstanding midfield talents when he was in charge of Everton and knows the 19-year-old is destined for the top.

Former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is also an admirer of a player who won his first England cap coming on as a sub in the World Cup qualifier against Moldova at Wembley.

Bids would have to start around £20m and Chelsea's Jose Mourinho is already believed to have tested the water over the teenager within weeks of taking over at Stamford Bridge.
