Manchester United plan triple January raid

Manchester United have their eye on a trio of talented youngsters and could be ready to make a move in January, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Old Trafford-based outfit are seemingly gearing up for a busy winter, with Celtic’s Victor Wanyama, Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski and Blackpool’s Tom Ince all on their radar.

Manchester United have shown an interest in landing Ince, son of Red Devils legend Paul Ince, in recent weeks.

Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly present to see the talented youngster in action before the international break in Blackpool’s 2-0 win over Charlton.

Ince, billed as being better than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott by Seasiders boss Ian Holloway, could make the switch to Old Trafford in January if Ferguson decides to make a move, despite Holloway’s protestations otherwise.

Along with the 20-year-old winger, Man Utd are also eyeing up a potential move for Celtic’s Victor Wanyama according to MEN.

United added to their squad over the summer but failed to land a replacement for Paul Scholes, a long-term problem for the Red Devils.

Manchester United have needed a replacement for Scholes, who is set to retire at the end of the season once more, for some time and have ear-marked numerous targets over the years.

With Darren Flecther only just back from serious injury and serious doubts over the future of Anderson, MEN claim that the Red Devils have been alerted by the performances of Wanyama who can operate as both a defensive midfielder as well as a more orthadox central player.

Wanyama has impressed for Celtic since moving to Scotland last year and has attracted numerous Premier League suitors, with United said to be attracted by the Kenyan’s potential.

Although the Old Trafford club can have high hopes of landing both their other targets, they may struggle to get a deal over the line for Lewandowski.

United continue to ‘have an eye’ on the Polish forward despite his insistence last week that he would honour his contract with Dortmund.

The 24-year-old may have ruled out a move to Manchester United this season, but admitted a move to the Premier League could happen in the near future.
