Man Utd and Chelsea have been keeping close tabs on Santos’ in-demand defensive midfielder Thiago Maia, according to reports on Calciomercato.com.
However, the Premier League duo will both have to battle it out with the likes of Juventus and PSG for the Brazil U23 international’s signature.
The 19-year-old has a contract with Santos until the summer of 2019.
Paris Saint-Germain are looking for midfield reinforcement in January and might see Blaise Matuidi leaving the Parc des Princes with Juventus interested in signing the French midfielder.
The Serie A giants are also interested in signing Thiago Maia, but PSG are set to offer € 20 million to Santos to seal the 19-year-old midfielder. Juventus, on the other hand, are only open to offer € 10 million, making PSG the favourite club to welcome the services of the U-23 Brazil International.
