Manchester United and Liverpool to battle for Serie A starlet

Manchester United and Liverpool have joined the race to sign Inter Milan starlet Ibrahima Mbaye, according to talkSPORT.

The full back is currently on loan at Livorno, where his performances have attracted the attention of several top clubs at home and abroad.

Both Lazio and Juventus are both tracking his progress, with both understood to have had offers for his services rebuffed during the January transfer window.

The 19-year-old has managed 20 league appearances this season, and Inter are keen to tie the talented youngster to a new deal.

His current contract expires in 2016, but with two Premier League giants registering an interest, Inter are aware they may find him difficult to keep a hold of.

The £2.2million rated defender was a part of the Inter side that won the NextGen youth competition in 2012.

Both Manchester United and Liverpool are on the lookout for new full backs in the summer.

United are likely to part company with Patrice Evra, whose contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of the season.

Meanwhile Liverpool still have concerns over the fitness of Jose Enrique, who has not featured for the club since October.

French full back Aly Cissokho is unlikely to make his loan switch to Anfield permanent, after struggling to adapt to the Premier League since joining from Valencia in the summer.
