Rio de Janeiro: Inter Milan have joined Manchester United in the battle to sign teenage Brazilian left-back Guilherme Arana, according to media reports.
The 19-year-old has impressed this year with his form for Brazilian Serie A side Corinthians, where he has established himself as a first-team regular, reports Xinhua.
According to Uol Esporte, the Italian club is keen to secure the defender during the January transfer window.
But Manchester United could have the upper hand after holding talks with Arana’s agents Guilherme Miranda and Leonardo Cornacini earlier this month, according to the news portal.
Arana has made 33 first-team appearances for Corinthians since being promoted from the club’s youth system in 2014.
