According to the latest from Spanish outlet ABC which claims, Manchester United and Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vazquez on a free transfer this summer.
He is currently on wages of around £2.98 million annually and has reportedly declined to take a 10 percent pay-cut to extend his stay with the Spanish champions.
Man United and Chelsea are among the Premier League clubs interested while AC Milan, and Bayern Munich are also keen on the versatile player.
Vazquez is reportedly eyeing a four-year contract, and the above-mentioned teams are willing to meet his demands to land his signature. Vazquez has not been a regular starter for Los Blancos over the years, but he has been a consistent performer on the playing field.
He has managed a credible tally of two goals and seven assists in 31 matches, and his work rate is something that has been often talked about.

Vazquez does not make regular scoring contributions, he could be an option for them, meanwhile United have been on the search for a right-winger for a while.
His ability to play in the right-back position may be another attractive prospect, given Aaron Wan-Bissaka has offered a limited threat going forward.
Chelsea have gone with Reece James and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the right wing-back role since Thomas Tuchel took charge as the manager in January.
The German may want signings of his own this summer, and Vazquez could be signed to compete with James, as Hudson-Odoi is not accustomed to the position.
