Fresh reports have emerged suggesting Manchester United could move for Liverpool target Ashley Young during the summer.
The Aston Villa winger's future has been the subject of intense speculation for a number of months, and it is unlikely to show any sign of abating when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season.
With reports in today's press claiming that Luis Nani is considering leaving Old Trafford for Serie A during the summer transfer window, the Guardian has suggested that United may give 'serious consideration' to a bid for Young should they lose the Portuguese attacker.
However, Nani - who could be in line for a surprise appearance against Marseille at Old Trafford tonight - has taken to Twitter to pour cold water on reports alleging he wants to quit United.
He Tweeted: "I've seen some false reports on the press. I want you to know that you will hear the truth from me. Love MU"
Should United decide to enter the race for Young, then Liverpool are likely to provide a threat in their potential pursuit.
Liverpool are known to have been monitoring the £16 million-rated England international for some time and Damien Comolli has previously admitted the Anfield club would be interested should the 25-year-old become available.
"For Young, if he is on the market then we will be interested," said the Liverpool strategy director. “But I don't believe that is the case.”
The acquisition of more potent attacking threats is a summer priority for Liverpool, with the likes of Keisuke Honda and Charles N'Zogbia frequently linked with moves to Anfield.
