Manchester United and Arsenal target linked with Serie A switch

Published Add your comment

Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United are set to face competition in the battle to sign Adil Rami, with AS reporting that Italian heavyweights AC Milan are plotting a January loan move for the outspoken Valencia defender.

27-year-old Rami, who arrived at the Mestalla Stadium from Ligue 1 outfit Lille in 2011, incurred the wrath of his current employers after publicly criticising Serbian coach Miroslav Dukic on Spanish radio in September.

Those somewhat ill-advised comments led to much speculation about the Frenchman's immediate future, particularly with the news that he had been subsequently suspended without pay for one week following the outburst.

A plethora of teams from around Europe have linked with moves for Rami, with Premier League title-chasing trio Arsenal, City and United all reportedly interested in acquiring his services.

Those aforementioned sides look set to face stiff competition from across the continent, however, with Rafael Benitez's Napoli and Russian top-flight outfit Rubin Kazan already mooted as possible destinations. 

Massimiliano Allegri's Milan are the latest club to be rumoured to be interested in taking Rami from La Liga, with AS reporting that the club are hoping to complete an initial loan move for the centre-back before making the deal permanent in the summer for a fee of approximately €12 million.
