Chelsea are reportedly prepared to spend £20 million to sign Manchester United target Ross Barkley in January.

The Everton teenager is regarded as one of the finest prospects in English football and, hence, has consistently been linked wit a big-money move away from Goodison Park.

According to The People, Chelsea are set to make their move for the 17-year-old in the New Year, but are willing to loan him back to the Toffees for the remainder of the season.

However, Chelsea may have have to cotend with interest from United for Barkley, who has been likened to Old Trafford star Wayne Rooney.

The 25-year-old United striker was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson from Everton in 2004, and Barkley could follow in Rooney's footsteps.

However, Andre Villas-Boas looks set to beat his United counterpart to the first offer for the young midfielder.
