Manchester United are readying a £25million bid for Napoli forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, according to reports in Italy.


The Journal of Naples claims the Argentinean forward is considering his future after Napoli’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season and that Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer him a way out to Old Trafford.


The Red Devils are keen to rebuild next season after losing their Premier League title to Manchester City on the final day of last season and are prepared to splash the cash in a bid to regain the championship next year, according to talkSPORT.


The report claims Lavezzi has a £25million buy-out clause in his current contract and that United are willing to match that in order to land the Argentina international.


Both Chelsea and Manchester City reportedly retain an interest in the 27-year-old, but are currently concentrating on other targets – including Lavezzi’s teammate Edinson Cavani.
