The Blues have this week been linked with a move for the Turkey star, but AS reports [via Daily Star] the Red Devils have joined the race for the 28-year-old.
According to the reports, United manager Louis van Gaal is believed to be willing to splash £28m of his summer kitty to lure Turan to Old Trafford, however Atletico Madrid are desperately keen to hold onto one of its star players.
Turan has two years remaining on his deal with Atletico but United are hoping to tempt the La Liga heavyweights into selling the player with a big offer.
Chelsea were linked to Turan with a swap deal for out-of-favour left-back Felipe Luis, however Atletico seem hell-bent to keep Turan at the Vicente Calderon.
