Manchester United have held talks with the Argentina international’s representatives but recent reports suggest it is Liverpool who are in pole position to sign him in the coming months. The midfielder’s final decision however may ultimately rest on who clinches a top four finish, according to The Athletic. Newcastle United and Manchester United currently occupy third and fourth place, level on 66 points. Liverpool are four points adrift in fifth place ahead of their Monday night clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. Mac Allister has not agreed a deal with any club as of yet. Brighton are bracing themselves for bids for both Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo, who was the subject of a £70million offer from Arsenal during the January window. Interest in both players continues to grow as the season draws to a close with Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi admitting the duo could leave, while hoping Karoru Mitoma will be among those to remain for another season at least.

You have to arrive ready in the head. We can offer them the possibility to progress and to improve.’ Mac Allister recently calmed speculation over his future by insisting he is ‘really happy’ at Brighton. ‘I’ve been here three-and-a-half years,’ he told Sky Sports after the recent league win over Manchester United. ‘I know what this club gave to me, I’m really grateful and I’m really happy to be here. ‘It’s a fantastic team, like a family, so every time I’m on the pitch I really enjoy being here. It’s easy to play in this team. The way we play is very nice, my team-mates are fantastic. ‘It’s down to them as well. I’m really pleased to play with them and they help me to be a better player every day.’
