Roma star Radja Nainggolan would rather join Manchester United over Liverpool this summer, reports the Daily Star.

The midfield ace, who has been in tremendous form throughout the course of the campaign, is seemingly wanted by both clubs, with the report from the Daily Star revealing that Manchester United are set to make a £30 million move for his signature in the next transfer window. 

Serie A interest 

In fact, the report has claimed that the Red Devils have now turned their attentions to Nainggolan after ending interest in his teammate Kevin Strootman and fellow Serie A star Arturo Vidal. 

There's no doubt about it, if United secured a deal to bring Nainggolan to the Premier League, then he'd prove quite the coup for the club. 

The 26-year-old, who is a Belgian international, has gone from strength-to-strength in recent time, and is now recognised as one of the best midfielders in Italy's elite division. 

Extremely energetic, Nainggolan would no doubt improve Louis van Gaal's options in the middle of the park at Old Trafford, but it now remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United are able to agree a deal to secure his signature. 

Nainggolan is currently jointly owned by both Roma and Calgari, with the same report revealing that both clubs would be after around £15m each for his services. 

Liverpool interest 

United's potential move, then, looks set to come as a blow for the club's Premier League rivals Liverpool, who could now look set to step up their interest in Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

Liverpool, who landed the trio of Dejan Lovren, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from the Saints this past summer, could now head back to the club as they look to improve in the middle of the park.

With captain Steven Gerrard set to leave Merseyside, Schneiderlin would no doubt prove a fine replacement, having impressed in England's elite division over the course of the past 12 months or so. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Liverpool will attempt to battle Manchester United for the signature of Nainggolan.
