Manchester United have joined rivals Manchester City and Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign AC Milan’s Ismael Bennacer, according to a report from French outlet RMC Sport.

The report adds that United are the latest club to show interest in the Algeria international, who won Player of the Tournament at the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

A report from The Sun earlier this week suggested that City are interested in the midfielder, who made one League Cup appearance for Arsenal as a 17-year-old in 2015 and left the London club in search of first-team football before joining Empoli two years later.

Rather interestingly, a move to Old Trafford would see Bennacer become the first Algerian to play for United’s first-team, but we are some way off getting our hopes up about this transfer.
