Inter Milan have moved into pole position as they plot a January swoop for Manchester United midfield target Marco Verratti, as reported by talkSPORT.

The Paris Saint-Germain starlet - who only penned a new one-year contract extension in August - is also wanted by Fiorentina, but it's Inter who look to have stolen a march on their rivals.

With the Nerazzurri set to be taken over imminently, the Serie A giants are looking to make a splash when the transfer window re-opens in the New Year - and Verratti is one of their top targets.

Manchester United boss David Moyes is a big fan of the 20-year-old Italian and was heavily linked with Verratti when high-profile moves for Cesc Fabregas and Thaigo Alcantara failed to come to fruition over the summer.

However, United settled for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, with the Belgian international completing his Old Trafford switch for £27.5 million on transfer deadline day.

But Moyes may well reignite his interest in the PSG starlet once dubbed the 'new Andrea Pirlo' if Inter's approach is accepted.

Manchester United will be keeping a close eye on Verratti's situation.
