Manchester United To Challenge Tottenham For £12m Championship Wing Wizard

Premier League trio tracking Birmingham youngster.

Check-In to Cluj v Man United

Manchester United are ready to go head-to-head with Tottenham in the battle for Birmingham winger Nathan Redmond, reports the Metro.

The 18-year-old’s performances for the Championship side have established him as one of the rising stars of English football and Liverpool and Manchester City are also understood to be tracking the youngster.

Tottenham have long been interested in Redmond but were put off making a bid this summer by Birmingham’s £12m valuation, although the Blues are resigned to losing the speedy playmaker in the next six months.

Although Spurs are hopeful of concluding a deal for Redmond, Manchester United have now emerged as serious rivals for his signature.

United boss Alex Ferguson showed his willingness to recruit from the lower leagues this summer, landing Crewe wonderkid Nick Powell.

And the Old Trafford boss is keen to add reinforcements out-wide, with unsettled winger Nani seeking an exit and Ryan Giggs approaching his 39th birthday.
