Barcelona pushing Man Utd all the way for Sevilla star Krychowiak

Spanish giants Barcelona are showing significant interest in Sevilla's Grzegorz Krychowiak.

The star midfielder has been heavily linked with Manchester United in recent weeks but the Premier League club could be beaten off by new manager Jose Mourinho's former nemesis, Barca.

Mundo Deportivo suggests that Barcelona officials have informed Krychowiak's representatives that they are genuinely interested in the 26-year-old Poland international.

It is understood that Luis Enrique sees Krychowiak as a great foil for holding midfielder Sergio Busquets and an apt replacement for Javier Mascherano, who could leave Camp Nou this summer.

Arsenal and Manchester City have also been credited with a curiosity in the former Reims man who would cost around £30million, according to some reports.
