REVEALED: 'Man Utd, Man City challenging Barcelona' for Velez starlet Thiago Almada

Manchester United and Manchester City retain an interest in Velez Sarsfield starlet Thiago Almada.

That's according to local reporter Nico De la Rua, of Cancha Argentina.

De la Rua revealed: “It's no secret that he's liked by Marseille sporting director Pablo Longoria.

"But Barça, Atlético, the two clubs from Manchester and all the big clubs in Europe are after him."

Almada has a deal with Velez to 2023 and saw a €20m offer from one unnamed European club turned down last summer.
