Barkley monitored by Chelsea and Man Utd

   The future of Ross Barkley looks no clearer amid reports Chelsea and Manchester United have entered the race to sign him. Several papers including the Daily Mail, The Telegraph and The Times claim United and Chelsea are monitoring the situation should a rumoured move to Tottenham fall through, reports ESPN.

Everton and England playmaker Ross Barkley is reportedly being monitored by Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as a Goodison Park exit looks increasingly likely.

The Red Devils and the Blues have joined Spurs in pursuit of the 23-year-old, according to Paul Joyce of the Times, who added either team could make an offer after he entered the last year of his Everton contract.

Barkley has been linked with a move away from the Toffees in recent months, although the club could struggle to find a buyer after it was reported Everton are seeking £50 million for his signature.

The Independent have revealed Everton are prepared to compromise on the £50m they initially wanted for Barkley and Tottenham Hotspur are back in for the midfielder. The 23-year-old has just one year remaining on his deal with his boyhood team and manager Ronald Koeman has already moved on, identifying Gylfi Sigurdsson as his replacement.

However, the Daily Mirror claim Barkley's wage demands may be a stumbling block. He's reported to want £150,000-a-week which would make him the club's top earner.
