Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see 10 stars who have been linked with both City and United in recent months, according to various reports.
Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has constantly been in the papers in recent months, and the Daily Mirror believes it will be either the Red Devils or the Citizens who land him at the end of this season. Jose Mourinho apparently sees the Brazilian as a possible replacement for Michael Carrick, while Pep Guardiola could replace Ivory Coast international Yaya Toure with the 25-year-old.
The Manchester clubs are also in the market for a few defensive acquisitions, and the Daily Star has linked FC Barcelona centre back Samuel Umtiti and Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld with both teams. The two defenders are apparently stalling new contract talks with their current clubs as they believe they are owed better wages.
Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann was, at one point, United's No. 1 transfer target but that seems to have all changed as the likes of FC Barcelona and Manchester City have come along. The Telegraph has stated that Mourinho is still interested in signing the Frenchman if given the opportunity, but after beating City to Alexis Sanchez, Guardiola may come out fighting for the France international.
Others who are also linked with both Manchester clubs, according to various reports, are Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Jorginho, Thiago Alcantara, Julian Weigl, Harry Maguire and David Alaba.
