Manchester United faces the competition from China to reward Luis Suarez of Barcelona, as reported in Spain.
The 32-year-old, who has stormed the Premier League during his three and a half seasons in Liverpool, has scored 15 goals in the Liga in 22 games this season.
Barcelona are six points behind Real Madrid at the top of the first Spanish division, with Suarez the second best scorer of the championship behind Lionel Messi.
GOLdigital claims that the United States is monitoring the international situation of Uruguay at the Camp Nou, and that even the Chinese clubs have been shooting.
It is very unlikely, of course, to see Liverpool's former No. 7 at Old Trafford any time soon. United's transfer policy under executive vice president Ed Woodward has seen club players under the age of 27 – except Zlatan Ibrahimovic – to ensure an extended value for any financial outlay and there is nothing to suggest that United will make a move.
Tottenham's central defender Toby Alderweireld was judged to be too expensive at the age of 29 to secure the £ 50 million mentioned by the North London team last summer.
Meanwhile, it is said that Philippe Coutinho maintains the confidence of the Barcelona council in the middle of his fall this season.
The Brazilian international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window amid his fights to secure a regular starting place under the head of Barcelona Ernesto Valverde.
But ESPN argues that while there are doubts as to where exactly Coutinho, former Liverpool, fits into the Camp Nou plans, the 26-year-old will not be sold in the near future after his arrival of £ 142 million from Anfield in January 2018.
