Manchester United and Tottenham are reportedly eyeing up a move for Atletico Madrid’s sporting director Andrea Berta.
Berta has been at the forefront of reorganising Atletico’s transfer strategy, and has attracted interest from United before.
The Italian has been at the La Liga outfit for a decade, initially serving as technical director before being promoted to sporting director in 2017.
However, according to the Independent, both Premier League sides will need to fend off interest from French giants PSG, who have also expressed a desire to lure Berta away from the Metropolitano Stadium.

With Spurs former managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, resigning in April this year, the North London club are looking to reshape their executive team.
Meanwhile after United’s poor start to the season and many of their new signings struggling to adapt to Old Trafford, Berta has resurfaced as a potential candidate to join the club.
However United’s current managing director John Murtough would reportedly keep his job should Berta head to Manchester.
After PSG’s Champions League battering at the hands of Newcastle, the Ligue 1 champions are also looking to rethink their transfer approach.
They are reportedly looking to focus on recruiting more youth, with Berta the kind of man that could lead such a drastic change.
