Premier League rivals Manchester United and Manchester City are ready to go head-to-head for Inter Milan fullback Douglas Maicon.
It has been reported by newspapers that Sir Alex Ferguson and Mark Hughes are are keeping a close eye the Inter Milan right back, who has also attracted the interest of Spanish giants FC Barcelona.
The fierce rivals have already locked horns over Dimitar Berbatov and Carlos Tevez in the last two seasons, while the rivalry between the two clubs has heightened further this season with the Blues’ cheeky poster welcoming the Argentina striker to Manchester and United’s last-gasp derby victory.
It is now believed that the both clubs are set to go head-to-head again in the January transfer window for the Brazilian international.
Maicon would cost around £20m, which would be no problem for either of the Manchester clubs.
