Manchester United add Luciano Vietto to transfer shortlist

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have added another striker to a growing list of potential summer transfer targets, reports the Daily Mail.

David Moyes is looking to overhaul his Manchester United squad with as much £200m being set aside for a number of high profile transfers.

The Manchester United manager will be looking to strengthen every area of the pitch with a new striker heavy on the agenda.

A shortlist of targets has been drawn up by Moyes, thought to contain the likes of PSG's Edinson Cavani, Atletico Madrid's Diego Costa, Mario Mandzukic at Bayern Munich and now starlet Luciano Vietto.

The Argentine striker has earned rave reviews for his performances for Argentinian outfit Racing Club and has quickly been labelled as the 'next Sergio Aguero'.

At just 20-years-old, Vietto will represent a signing for the future for Moyes, with the striker having significantly less experience than the three aforementioned players.

However, with Robin van Persie still playing a prominent role in the team, Moyes may see the young fledgling as the perfect signing to ease in to the team.

But they aren't the only club chasing Vietto's signature. Liverpool, according to the Daily Express, are also keen to bring the young striker to Europe.

Brendan Rodgers has had his network of scouts scouring the globe for young talent and Vietto has been earmarked as a potential addition.

With Liverpool looking more likely to grab a Champions League place than United, Anfield may look like the more attractive option for the young Argentine.
