Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to become embroiled in a tug-of-war for Anderlecht defender Vincent Kompany after both clubs revealed they are watching him.
The Catalan giants are reported to be ready to make a bid at the end of the season with both coach Frank Rijkaard and Real president Joan Laporta praising the Belgian youngster.
"Anything can happen", said Rijkaard. "He is playing very well with his team, but he is only 18 years old. We are watching him to see how he improves."
The opening salvo in the summer battle for Belgian starlet Vincent Kompany looks to have come from Juventus.
The Italian giants are understood to have had a bid of €6 million, plus either Marcelo Zalayeta or Igor Tudor, rejected by Les Mauves.
Anderlecht are looking for a fee in excess of €15 million for Kompany, who looks highly likely to depart The Constant Vanden Stock Stadion this summer.
