Manchester United look set for a summer transfer battle with Barcelona over the signature of Thiago Silva after reports linked both clubs with the Brazilian centre-back today.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to bring some much needed defensive cover to Old Trafford and has already highlighted a number of targets, including the 27-year-old Milan defender according to Spanish site, Fichajes.com.

Barcelona are also reportedly interested in Silva, who arrived in Italy from Brazilian outfit Fluminense in 2008, and the two clubs look set to battle it out for the player’s signature during the summer.

Barça have struggled with injuries this season and coach Pep Guardiola is also said to be concerned with the alarming dip in form shown by Gerard Pique in recent months.

United have also experienced a torrid time with injuries and captain Nemanja Vidic was ruled out for the season after damaging knee ligaments during his side’s 2-1 Champions League defeat at Basle in early December.
