Manchester City are ready to test Manchester United’s interest in Demarai Gray and Saido Berahino, Football Express News understands.

West Bromwich Albion hitman Saido Berahino, who has netted 18 goals in 43 appearances for the Baggies this term, has emerged as a target for Louis van Gaal in the summer.

Another player on Manchester United’s radar is Birmingham City’s teenage star Demarai Gray. The 18-year-old has impressed at St Andrews this season, and the Red Devils are keen to snap up the England U19 international.

Manchester United, who completed the capture of Memphis Depay a few days ago, are wasting little time in targeting their summer recruits but it is understood that City are also interested.

It’s expected to be a busy summer in Manchester, and the lure of Champions League football is expected to tempt both youngsters into a move.
