Manchester United are leading Liverpool in the chase to sign Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Maria Gimenez, reports AS.
Both Premier League clubs want Gimenez to bolster their defence and they have informed the player’s representatives of their interest in his situation.
Gimenez has slipped down the defensive pecking order at Atleti and wants to play more. The Uruguayan’s buyout clause is set at €45m.
Note that Gimenez has made 19 appearances during this season.
