Liverpool and Manchester United are set to do battle over the signing of promising young German Matthias Ginter.

Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Brendan Rodgers are keen on the 19-year-old and have sent scouts out to watch him, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

Ginter is a talented and versatile young player and has played in a number of positions for his club Freiburg in the Bundesliga

He initially went into the first team as a central defender but has since been deployed at full-back, centre midfield and even on the right.

Manchester United have a players with similar attributes in Phil Jones, who Ferguson recently claimed could one day be the Old Trafford club’s greatest ever player.

An interest in Ginter could be to do with the reported second retirement of Paul Scholes and long-term fitness doubts over combative midfielder Darren Fletcher.

Liverpool meanwhile will be looking to further add to their squad this summer as they attempt to try and get back in to the Champions League again.

Anfield owners FSG carry out a policy of purchasing almost exclusively young talent from around the world and Ginter would certainly fit the bill.
