United and Chelsea on alert for Atletico star.
Manchester United and Chelsea could be on alert as Atletico Madrid defender Miranda looks set to make the decision to quit the club either in January or next summer, according to Spanish source Fichajes.net.
The Brazilian centre-back has been one of the top performers in Diego Simeone’s side in recent times, performing at an outstanding level for the club last season as they surprised many by winning the La Liga title and reaching the final of the Champions League.
Both United and Chelsea have been linked as the main admirers of Miranda in recent months, and it now looks as though the player may be eyeing an exit from the club in the near future as he seeks a new challenge.
The Red Devils are short of options in defence at the moment and are known to be tracking a number of different players for this position, with Miranda now likely to be a strong candidate once again as he looks likely to become available.
Chelsea are less in need of reinforcements in that position but may be planning to bring in a replacement for the ageing John Terry before too long.
