Sky Sports claim Roma defender Mehdi Benatia is en route to complete a €30m Manchester United move.
There had already been reports from CNN pundit Tancredi Palmeri earlier today that United were intercepting Chelsea’s negotiations for the player.
These intensified this evening after their shock 2-1 home defeat to Swansea City in the Premier League.
Sky Sports in the UK claim Benatia is on his way to England for the final details with Manchester United.
Roma director of sport Walter Sabatini is in London this weekend for talks with several different clubs.
He had also been sent to listen to Tottenham’s offer for Mattia Destro, Chelsea’s Benatia proposal and to ask Manchester City for Stevan Jovetic.
Benatia had been on the verge of joining Manchester City earlier this summer, but the English club pulled the plug on a €35m deal.
