Manchester United are ready to make a move for Valencia’s highly-rated defender Adil Rami, who is also a reported summer target of FC Barcelona.

Sir Alex Ferguson has sent scouts to watch the former-Lille centreback and United officials were at the Britannia Stadium last night to watch Rami play in Valencia’s 1-0 Europa League victory over Stoke City.

The Sun claim United are ready to meet Valencia’s valuation of £20 million for the 26-year-old but face stiff competition from Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona, who have been also monitoring the player in recent weeks.

The French international arrived at the Mestalla in June last year, for a reported fee of around £8 million and has had a fantastic debut season in La Liga.

Ferguson was first alerted to Rami while the defender was still playing for Lille but decided against a move to bring him to United.

However Rami’s form this season has forced a re-think by the United manager and he is now said to be readying a summer move to bring him to Old Trafford.
