Premier League giants told to pay up for La Liga star.
Manchester United and Chelsea will have to pay around £27m to sign Brazilian defender Miranda from Atletico Madrid, according to Fichajes.net.
The 30-year-old has been in immense form for Diego Simeone’s side in recent times, putting in some great displays as Atletico won La Liga and reached the Champions League final last season.
United and Chelsea were both linked with him during the summer, though a move never materialised, and it could now be that United are particularly keen to renew their interest in him this January.
The Red Devils need signings in defence after some worrying results so far this season, with Miranda seemingly the top target for Louis van Gaal.
