Manchester United and Bayern Munich battling to sign Serie A defender

Manchester United Football Club are a side whom need somewhat of a huge overhaul to compete at the highest level once again, and Louis van Gaal is still trying to solve that. We are now just a few months away from the summer transfer window opening, where business will certainly be done.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United and Bayern Munich are locked in a two-way battle to land Inter Milan defender, Jeison Murillo.

The 23-year old has impressed out in the Serie A since his arrival in the summer, and has been a mainstay in their back four ever since the transfer took place.

Now he could well be on the move after just twelve months at one club, and Gazzetta dello Sport go on to say that Manchester United could well be favourite to land the Columbian – especially if Jose Mourinho is in charge come the summer.
