Manchester United have reportedly 'made contact' with Uruguayan winger Gaston Ramirez's representatives over a move from Bologna.

Media sources in the Italian city claim the Red Devils have been joined by 'noisy neighbours' Manchester City in their pursuit of the player, with the pair keen on bringing Ramirez to England at the next available opportunity.

Any issue in relation to a work permit is also not thought to be an issue, given the player's increased involvement with his country at international level. The 20-year-old helped Uruguay win the Copa America in the summer.

Likened to Chilean international and Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez, Ramirez is reported to be aware of the interest from the Barclays Premier League clubs.

Manchester United spent big this summer to strengthen their ranks with youth talent, with David de Gea and Phil Jones joining Ashley Young in moves to Old Trafford.


Sir Alex Ferguson was also linked with a move for Sanchez, but Manchester United failed to win that race as the Udinese star made a La Liga switch.

Should Manchester United land the player, Ramirez would join a growing list of compatriots now plying their trade in the Barclays Premier League.
