Manchester United are reportedly preparing to battle Barcelona for the services of Marseille teenager Isaac Lihadji.
The 17-year-old, who is a four-time France Under-17 international, only has one year left to remain on his youth contract with OM and is yet to pen a professional deal.
According to La Provence, Lihadji currently feels that he is ready for first-team football after impressing in the Marseille academy, but the teenager is yet to make his competitive debut.
The report claims that the Frenchman's desire to explore other options has led to both United and Barca showing an interest in a player who has featured for his Ligue 1 club during pre-season.
Indeed, Lihadji was a half-time substitute in Marseille's 8-1 win over DC United last week.
Everton are also alleged to be monitoring developments when it comes to the youngster.
