Man Utd & Arsenal set for transfer battle over Marc Guehi


Crystal Palace's Marc Guehi is looking to make a move away from the club with Manchester United and Arsenal keen on signing the defender this summer.

It has been reported by The Times that Crystal Palace are expecting to lose the star defender this summer amid interest from the Red Devils and the Gunners. The 23-year-old central defender has been the centre of attention over the last two years and while he remained with Palace last summer, it is now expected that he will finally make a move this summer.

Guehi will reportedly be made available for a price of more than £55 million ($68.8m) due to his high potential and the fact that he still has two more years left on his contract. Man United are in dire need of fortification in the centre of defence and could be forced into a bidding war if they want to sign Guehi this summer with Sir Jim Ratcliffe looking to overhaul the dressing room.

Guehi, who came through Chelsea's system, signed with Palace three years ago for a reported price of £18 million ($22.5m). The west London side have the right to match offers from other teams, but it seems unlikely that they will be interested in re-signing the defender
