Manchester United and Chelsea could be about to fight it out for the signature of Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal.
Vidal looks to be heading out of Bayern this summer even though he still has 18 months left to run on his existing deal.
And claims in Chile suggest the midfielder is being chased by both United and Chelsea over a possible deal at the end of the season.
Top Chilean journalist Maks Cardenas has claimed the Premier League duo have shown interest in snapping up the 30-year-old former Juventus star.
Cardenas claimed on Twitter that the Blues and United will face competition from clubs in Italy and China for his services.
United chased Vidal hard three years ago before he left Juve to make the move to Bayern, only to pull back from making a deal.
And Chelsea have also held a long-standing interest in the combative midfielder with several enquiries made over the past few years.
But whether the London club will follow through with a firm offer this summer remains to be seen, with the club having plenty of players in the position in their squad.
Willian, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and N’Golo Kante are all available to manager Antonio Conte.
They also have highly-rated teenager Mason Mount due to come back in the summer following a successful loan season with Vitesse Arnheim.
United are still looking to strengthen their options in midfield, with Jose Mourinho likely to make more changes to his personnel this summer.
Michael Carrick will retire at the end of the season while doubts remain about the long-term future of Juan Mata.

Having signed Alexis Sanchez already this month, bringing in compatriot Vidal appears on paper to be a logical option.
But Mourinho is looking to build for the future at Old Trafford and Vidal is approaching the end of his career with a history of knee injuries.
