Man Utd Chase The Goalscoring 'Croatian Lampard', But Man City Want Him Too

Compared by some to Frank Lampard (mostly because of his knack for scoring an absolute sackful of goals from midfield), Croatian playmaker Ivan Rakitic has been steadily making quite a name for himself in Spain and now, according to the Daily Express, he could be on his way to Manchester.

Both clubs are interested in the midfielder, who's failed to impress since moving to Barca from Sevilla, and after only 20 appearances pundits are tipping him with a move to Van Gaal's United.

Don't forget however, that Lampard's deal at Man City expires in the new year, and Pellegrini will be eyeing up potential replacements. Rakitic fits the bill perfectly.
