Manchester United Now Scouting Deadly £11M Rated Liverpool Target

It has been reported that Manchester United are now targeting young Dutch starlet Ricky van Wolfswinkel from Sporting Lisbon.

The 22 year old has just moved to the Estadio Jose Alvalade this summer from Utrecht and would cost around £11m to land the young striker to Old Trafford.

The striker has been in deadly form during his short spell at Sporting scoring 6 goals in 7 matches in all competitions. He would however face tough competition to break into the first team with the likes of  Rooney, Hernandez, Berbatov, Wellbeck and Owen all standing in his way.

With Owen and Berbatov coming towards the end of their contracts, Ferguson will be looking to bolster his attack. However it is hardly unlikely that Wolfswinkel will make the transfer any time soon as he has just joined Sporting this summer, but with United on the horizon it could easily tempt the striker to move.
