Louis van Gaal has reportedly singled out Leicester City forward Riyad Mahrez as the answer to Manchester United's problems in the final third.
The Algerian has flourished under Claudio Ranieri at the King Power Stadium as the Foxes sit third in the Premier League table.
On the other hand, the Red Devils have faltered in recent weeks and have drawn their last three games 0-0.

According to France Football, the Old Trafford club, and French giants Paris Saint-Germain, have begun talking with the 24-year-old's representatives over a possible move.
It is no surprise the Algerian is being touted by some of Europe's biggest clubs given his exhilarating displays for the east Midlands outfit; he has been involved in 11 of Leicester's previous 12 goals.
Mahrez was plucked from French Ligue 2 side Le Havre in 2014 and could be set to complete an astronomic rise up the footballing ladder in the not too distant future. Although, Leicester will surely ask any potential suitor to pay through the nose for his services.
Manchester United's performances under Van Gaal have been lacking creativity. There is no impetus going forward and they look too content to retain possession. The addition of Mahrez would surely help the Red Devils rediscover some of their fluency in the final third.
At the present moment, there is nobody in the side who is willing to run at the opposition. Anthony Martial attempts to, but he is wasted on the left-wing while Memphis Depay is still getting to grips with the Premier League.
