Manchester United appears ready to battle Chelsea over Valencia winger Sofiane Feghouli after it emerged yesterday that Chelsea was busy lining up the Algerian international as a replacement for Eden Hazard as a move to Real Madrid appears to be on the cards for the young Belgium international.

Manchester United however have more pressing needs as they push to win this seasons title as manager Louis van Gaal looks to strengthen his squad in January.

The 25-year-olds contract with the La Liga club expires at the end of the season, which means Valencia may accept a reduced fee in January rather than see him walk for nothing in the summer.
