Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in signing Parma midfielder Jose Mauri, reports the Daily Star.
They face competition from the continent for his signature in the form of Bayern Munich and Juventus, who are also keen on the 18-year-old. The latter may have become interested after he scored in a shock 1-0 win over the Old Lady on Saturday.
The teenager has played well in a poor Parma side this season, scoring twice in 25 Serie A appearances. This is even more impressive when you consider the youngster has had to come in to a side that is going bankrupt and is bottom of the league.
With the financial problems that I Crociati have been experiencing it could be that Mauri will be available in a cut price deal in the summer. With Financial Fair Play rules biting this could make him very enticing to Europe’s biggest clubs.
