Red Devils interested in Ghanaian playmaker…
Manchester United have reportedly made a surprise move for Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, according to a report in the Daily Mail. Red Devils’ boss Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to strengthen his midfield options in the summer, following his team’s failure to secure a record 20th league title.
Although the 70 year old Scot is already close to landing Borussia Dortmund’s Shinji Kagawa, he is believed to also want the 25 year old Milan man to give him more options in the centre of the park.
In addition, Ferguson, who failed to sign Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan last summer, is also racing with rivals Manchester City and Chelsea to sign Ligue 1 club Lille’s 21 year old attacking midfielder Eden Hazard.
As far as the rumoured bid for Boateng goes, the Italian club is still contemplating whether or not to offer the Ghanaian a new contract or sell him.
The Ghanaian playmaker has enjoyed a strong season in Milan, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances, but injuries restricted him to just half of his side’s matches.
The 25-year-old shone in Milan’s Champions League run to the quarter finals, scoring memorable goals against Arsenal and Barcelona.
