Manchester United face serious competition from big-spending Paris Saint-Germain in their bid to sign former Chelsea flop Nemanja Matic.

The 24-year-old is rated at £15million and talkSPORT claim Sir Alex Ferguson is interested in signing the Benfica midfielder this summer.

However, the Old Trafford club’s chase may no longer be so straightforward, as wealthy PSG are reportedly considering rivalling them for his signature.

Matic was signed by Chelsea in 2009 but only made two Premier League appearances as a substitute and was included in the deal that took Brazilian centre-back David Luiz to Stamford Bridge.

The Serbian has blossomed at Benfica since Javi Garcia joined Manchester City and his performances have attracted much interest from around Europe.

Ferguson has confirmed Manchester United are ready to make moves in the transfer market this summer and midfield has been highlighted as a possible area where the Red Devils need to improve.

If PSG begin to show in interest in Matic as well, Manchester United are likely to be forced into paying more than they would have originally planned to.

The report also claims Serie A champions Juventus are poised to make their interest known as well.
