Manchester United enter Saido Berahino race

Manchester United have entered the race to sign West Brom forward Saido Berahino, according to the Express. 

Berahino has been in excellent form for the Baggies this season, having already found the back of the net on seven occasions in the Premier League. And yesterday the forward was called up to the England national side by Roy Hodgson as the Three Lions take on Slovenia and Scotland over the coming weeks.

In fact, the youngster even scored against Louis van Gaal's Manchester United team when the two sides met at the Hawthorns last month. It appears, then, that he impressed the Dutch coach, and could yet make a move to the Theatre of Dreams in 2015.

Transfer battle 

However, Manchester United have quite the battle on their hands as they look to bring the young Englishman to the club. London duo Tottenham and Chelsea have also been credited with interest in the player, whilst the same report has also suggested that Liverpool are interested in bringing him to Anfield. 

West Brom boss Alan Irvine will, however, be hoping to keep his prize asset at the club, but recently admitted that it would take at least £15 million for the club to consider selling the player anytime soon.

Who needs him? 

With a number of the Premier League's big-boys seemingly interested in the 21-year-old, then it will certainly prove a tricky task for West Brom to keep him. Manchester United may already have an array of attacking talent at the club, but the signing of Berahino could help them as they go in search of long term success.

However, with the likes of Angel di Maria and Co. around at Old Trafford, it wouldn't be easy for the West Brom man to feature on a regular basis for Van Gaal's side. 

Chelsea, much like United, also have a number of forward stars plying their trade at the club, but Jose Mourinho seemingly wants to improve his Stamford Bridge squad even further. 

First-team chance? 

Both Tottenham and Liverpool, meanwhile, would potentially be able to offer the youngster more opportunities in the first-team, but it remains to be seen as to whether any of the clubs will step up their interest in him in the January or the summer window.
