Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly identified one of Manchester City's key players as a transfer target ahead of the coming season.
According to The Independent, the 20-time English champions are believed to be keeping tabs on Raheem Sterling.
The 25-year-old could look to move on from the Citizens if their two-year ban from European club competition, including the UEFA Champions League, is upheld, and United appear to be ready to pounce.
The Red Devils' rivals are reportedly in no way concerned by United's interest in Sterling, who joined City from Liverpool in 2015.
The England international has also been heavily linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid, with it being said that he would be more likely to leave the Citizens for Los Blancos than United.
City are understood to have no intentions of letting the winger leave in the coming transfer window, and especially not for one of their biggest rivals.
Sterling has scored 89 goals and assisted a further 72 strikes in 230 matches in five years for the Premier League champions, and has also contributed to 33 strikes in 56 appearances for the Three Lions.
