Manchester United defenders Mikael Silvestre and Gabriel Heinze remain targets of French champions Lyon.

Les Gones are desperate to fill the void left by Cris, the Brazilian centre-back who has been ruled out for six months with a knee injury, and Lyon coach Alain Perrin has confirmed that Silvestre and Heinze, as well as Benfica defender Cleber Anderson, are on the club´s wanted list.

On left-sided France defender Silvestre, Perrin said: "His agent has made a discreet appeal to us. Mikael has the advantage of being a versatile left-footer as well. We must now see the conditions in which he could come."
