Manchester United are willing to part company with striker Mame Biram Diouf, according to The People.

The Senegal striker has seen his opportunities at Old Trafford to just one appearance this season, against Leeds United in the Carling Cup.

And with the likes of Danny Welbeck and Michael Owen ahead in the pecking order as well as Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez, Diouf's opportunities at United are unlikely to improve.


United are reportedly willing to part with Diouf for as much as £6 million, £2 million more than what they brought him for in 2009.

United may be looking to offload striker in the coming transfer window, with five players, as well as Diouf contesting for two spots in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.
