Young Internazionale forward a target at both Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.
Inter Milan youngster Marko Livaja is thought to be a transfer target for both Chelsea and Manchester United.
The 19 year-old striker is the joint third highest goalscorer in the UEFA Europa League this season, with four goals in his six appearances so far for his side, and it is no surprise that teams across Europe are starting to take notice.
Internazionale coach Andrea Stramaccione seems to have great faith in the youngster, though his appearances in Serie A have only been as a substitute so far.
Enticing him away from the Nerazzurri would therefore not appear to be easy, but take Inter’s financial troubles into consideration and suddenly a deal seems all the more possible.
The blue half of Milan is struggling to meet UEFA’s financial fair play considerations, and has notoriously asked Wesley Sneijder to take a pay cut. Now, like Samuel Eto’o and Zlatan Ibrahimovic before him, he is likely to be sold as soon as Inter can get him off the books.
Livaja though would be a different story, as it is Sneijder’s wages that are causing Inter chief Massimo Moratti difficulty, and the Croatian teenager won’t be earning anywhere near that amount yet.
However, if Internazionale could coax a decent transfer fee from a club willing to place even more faith in their talented forward than Stramaccione has already, they could well be convinced to sell Marko Livaja.
