Manchester City and Manchester United go head to head for Palmeiras youngster Gabriel Veron, according to a report.

Manchester City and Manchester United are reportedly going head to head for the signature of Palmeiras youngster Gabriel Veron.

The 18-year-old has scored 11 times and registered five assists in 36 appearances for his Brazilian club, which is believed to have captured the attention of a number of European teams.

Barcelona have been strongly linked with the attacker, but according to Sport, City and United are leading the race to sign Veron.

The report claims that the two Manchester clubs are both negotiating with the youngster's representatives in the hope of agreeing personal terms ahead of a €20m (£17.7m) move.

City and United are allegedly both prepared for Veron to finish the season with Palmeiras before moving to the Premier League during this summer's transfer window.

Campeao do Seculo are in a strong position when it comes to the teenager's future as they have him on a contract until September 2025 with a release clause of €60m (£53m).

Veron won the Golden Ball at the 2019 Under-17s World Cup as he helped Brazil lift the trophy.
