Manchester United are considering a cut-price move for Porto midfielder Lucho Gonzalez, reports the Sunday Express.

The 32-year-old is being linked with a surprise move to the Premier League champions, who are looking to add creative reinforcements when the transfer window reopens.

Gonzalez has been a long-term target for Red Devils boss David Moyes, who tried to sign the Argentine schemer twice when he was in charge of Everton.

With just over six months remaining on his current contract at Estadio do Dragao, the South American star could be available for a nominal fee at the turn of the year.

Although Gonzalez cannot be considered a long-term solution to Manchester United's dearth of midfield talent, he could act as a temporary stop-gap for Moyes, particularly in the absence of Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini through injury.

After a disappointing start to the 2013/14 campaign, doubts have been raised over United's credentials to finish in the top-four this season.

Failure to do so would leave the club without Champions League football, but the arrival of Gonzalez could improve their chances of retaining a place in Europe's elite club competition, in the aftermath of life without Sir Alex Ferguson.
