Man Utd set to beat Liverpool in their pursuit of Schalke 04 defender Ozan Kabak

Manchester United are reportedly tempted to join the race to sign Schalke 04 defender Ozan Kabak.

Despite the poor form of the Bundesliga outfit, Turkey international Kabak has emerged as one of the club’s most prized assets.

That has led to the club being prepared to cash in on the 20-year-old as they look to boost their financial position during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Daily Mail, United may be prepared to rival Liverpool and AC Milan for the centre-back’s signature.

The report suggests that Schalke are ready to accept offers in the region of £25m, a significant reduction after previously valuing Kabak at £40m.

United hope to reduce their squad numbers in January with Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Jesse Lingard all in line to move elsewhere.
