Manchester United join race for Lazio midfielder

Candreva - LazioLazio’s Antonio Candreva has attracted the interest of Manchester City, according to reports.

The Italian was impressive for Italy during the Confederations Cup earlier this summer, and is also wanted by Napoli and AC Milan.

English newspaper The Daily Express report that new Manchester United manager David Moyes is impressed by the Italian’s versatility and energy.

Lazio would receive a bid of around €12 million from United for the 26 year old.

United would need to negotiate with both Udinese and Lazio, who each own 50% of the players contract on a co-ownership deal.

Candreva appeared 32 times for Lazio in Serie A last season, scoring six and assisting five.

    Would be suprised if Candreva leaves Lazio. Considering how many clubs he’s bounced around, looks like he’s finally found a home, can’t see him giving up a good thing
