United striker tipped to make Old Trafford exit - reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester United will allow Mame Biram Diouf to leave the club on a season-long loan - preferably to another Barclays Premier League club - it has been claimed.

According to talkSPORT, the 19-time title winners will listen to offers for Diouf, who spend the entirety of the last campaign with Blackburn Rovers.

The 23-year-old striker scored six times in 30 appearances for Rovers and, although Sir Alex Ferguson is said to remain keen on the Senegal international, the United boss wants him to gain experience elsewhere.

Blackburn are said to be interested in bringing Diouf back to Ewood Park, where he impressed the coaching staff, despite a questionable goalscoring record.


Former United favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also credited with interest in Diouf, which could see the young forward return to former club FK Molde.

The Norweigan outfit gave Diouf his first crack at football in Europe, before he moved to Old Trafford in May 2009.

Should Diouf remain at Old Trafford, he will have to contest Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Dimitar Berbatov, Michael Owen and Danny Welbeck for a place in Ferguson's plans.
