United & Chelsea chase USA strike star - reports

Football News

Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly pursuing USA international Brek Shea, while Manchester City are also said to be interested in the young forward.

According to the Daily Star, the Barclays Premier League trio are 'locked in a battle' to sign the 21-year-old, who currently plies his trade for FC Dallas.

Shea has been linked with United in the past, with reports two summers ago suggesting Sir Alex Ferguson was keen to bring him to Old Trafford.

And, if recent suggestions are to be believed, the United boss could be about to reignite his interest in the versatile striker to further reinforce his goalscoring ranks.


United can already boast the likes of Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck among their attacking number, and the imposing Shea would be another interesting acquisition.

City and Chelsea, meanwhile, are also looking to bolster respective squads with young talent - something Andre Villas-Boas did in earnest during the summer.

The Chelsea boss spent significant sums on some of Europe's top starlets, with Romelu Lukaku and Oriol Romeu both moving to Stamford Bridge in high-profile deals.
