Schalke are set to offer striker Klass-Jan Huntelaar a new deal to prevent a move from Manchester United, according to

The Dutch forward has scored 37 goals in 36 games this season, with just one point separating them from the Bundesliga top three.

With Dimitar Berbatov expected to leave United this summer, the Premier League leaders could delve into the transfer market for a replacement.

Huntelaar netted for Holland in last month's win over England at Wembley, while he also clashed with United defender Chris Smalling.

The 28-year-old has just over year to run on his current contract in Germany, and could be offered a new deal to prevent him signing an extension.

United have already parted with Mame Biram Diouf, while Federico Macheda isn't certain of a return from his loan spell at Queens Park Rangers, and Michael Owen's fitness problems have dramatically reduced his involvement.

Therefore, Sir Alex Ferguson will have a shortage of strikers for the new season, with a replacement potentially in the offing at Old Trafford.
