Man United and Liverpool could rival each other to see who can bring Vazquez to England

Despite having his first team starts limited this season at the Santiago Bernabeu, Vazquez has still managed to impress fans and critics alike with his ability and performances.

In total, the Spaniard has managed to make a total of 51 appearances, with a large part of these coming form the subs bench.

In those 51 appearances, the player has been able to clock up a total of eight goals and 16 assists, a decent return considering he often isn’t starting in these matches.

Vazquez would make a great addition to both Liverpool and Man United’s squads, it just remains to be seen whether either club will manage to get their hands on the player in the near future.
