Man United and Chelsea set to battle over yet another Belgian

The Red Devils came out on top in the tussle for Chelsea target Romelu Lukaku, and the two clubs will lock horns again as they attempt to secure the services of another Belgium international.

Jose Mourinho is determined to strengthen his midfield this summer. His two main targets had been Eric Dier and Nemanja Matic, but a move to United is looking increasingly unlikely for the pair. The Portuguese manager has set his sights on Roma's midfield dynamo Nainggolan.

Tottenham have made it clear that they have no intention of selling 23-year-old Dier, while Matic, who is eager to make the move to Old Trafford, may not be allowed to leave the Premier League title holders with all the tension surrounding Lukaku's move to Manchester.

Precisely the transfer of the former Everton striker saw Chelsea and Manchester United go head-to-head, which is something which could repeat itself shortly. The Blues are closing in on Bakayoko, but Conte is a firm admirer of Radja Nainggolan and is also ready to make a move for the Roma man.

The 29-year-old Belgium international could be open to a move away from the Italian capital, and two of the biggest clubs are a possible destination. Who will win the race this time?
