Manchester United are considering a move for AC Milan star Kevin-Prince Boateng, according to the Daily Mail.

The former-Spurs and Portsmouth midfielder has been a revelation since joining the Italian giants, and Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to be weighing up a bid to bolster his ageing midfield.

The Red Devils boss has been linked with a number of Europe's top creative midfielders this summer, including Lille winger Eden Hazard and Borussia Dortmund dynamo Shinji Kagawa.

But Boateng has emerged as a shock target, and AC Milan could be willing to part with the player to raise funds for a move for Santos starlet Paulo Henrique Ganso.

The Ghanaian playmaker has enjoyed a strong season in Milan, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances, but injuries restricted him to just half of his side's matches. The 25-year-old shone in Milan's Champions League run to the quarter finals, scoring memorable goals against Arsenal and Barcelona.

But the club's hierarchy are stalling on offering the midfielder a new deal, and a return to the Premier League could be on the cards if Manchester United decide he's worth the risk.

However, Hazard and Kagawa remain the key summer transfer targets for Ferguson at Old Trafford, as he looks to rebuild his squad for a title challenge next season.
