MANCHESTER UNITED want to fight Liverpool for Colombia’s next star Jhon Duran.

This month, SunSport revealed the Kop are targeting the exciting attacker, 18, who is making a massive impact with Chicago Fire in the MLS.

However, Chicago insiders have now revealed Erik ten Hag’s associates have been in contact and are keen to buy the £10million-rated international.

Duran’s agent and family members travelled to England recently.

And they have been speaking to interested teams both in the Premier League and Spain.

Chicago could be prepared to sell after a disappointing season.

Duran’s value could increase in the MLS but ready money now may come in handy.

The youngster only came into the Chicago side this season and clubs in Spain and Germany are on his trail.

He contributed eight goals and five assists in 27 appearances during the 2022 campaign.

That form has put a number of big-name European clubs on high alert.

Fire recently sold keeper Gabriel Slonina, also 18, to Chelsea for a similar price and would expect the same for their next discovery.

Todd Boehly's Blues were also linked with a move for Duran earlier this month.

It was reported that the American owner was discussing the Chicago star's name as a potential target.
