Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is interested in Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy as the Portuguese coach hopes to find a quality player who will help in reducing the goal scoring burden on Romelu Lukaku’s, reports the Telegraph.
Manchester United have listed some strikers whom they believe are good for the club. The list includes Alexis Sanchez who is likely to leave Arsenal before the January transfer window closes.
Another player on Mourinho’s target list is Javier Hernandez. The former Manchester United player could move back to Old Trafford as he is being used as a substitute in most matches played by West Ham in the first half of the season.
According to reports from Old Trafford, England international striker Jamie Vardy is the latest player added to the list, but Mourinho might be unable to get the speedy striker as Leicester Mercury reports that the 31-year-old wants to remain at the King Power stadium.
With the reports via Leicester Mercury, United could end their interest in Leicester City forward to avoid being embarrassed like Arsenal last summer. They can exert their focus on Alexis Sanchez who is looking for potential suitors after being dumped by City.
United have a great chance of acquiring the services of the Chilean striker after their neighbors Manchester City pulled out of the race for his signature. The Citizens are not willing to improve their £20million offer while Arsenal and his agent are asking for total sum of £40million from any interested club.
The combine worth of the stars is about £77m.
