Manchester United are competing with Chelsea for unsettled Roma star Miralem Pjanic.
The Times says United could end up battling Chelsea for the signing of Pjanic.
Antonio Conte, who is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge in the summer, has identified Pjanic as a potential transfer target.
United have also been linked with the Bosnia and Herzegovina international, with the likes of Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger both in their 30s.
Pjanic, 25, has been at Roma since joining from Lyon in 2011.
