Shocking- Manchester United, Bayern Munich scout Ligue 1 striker as deadline day looms

Nagendra / 30 August 2016

Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Bordeaux striker Diego Rolan despite no potential bid expected this summer.

The 23-year old is one of the fine strikers in French league and have attracted interested from a number of clubs across Europe.

Jose Mourinho who have already made some world class signings this summer is expecting a quite last few days in the transfer window as the Red Devils are not interested in making more moves this summer after spending a massive £150 million already.

A number of players are expected to leave Old Trafford before the end of transfer window but Mourinho is keen to keep a close eye on his targets going into the season.

The new manager has sent Manchester United scouts to watch Diego Rolan, according to French radio station RMC. The Uruguayan has scored the only goal in the 1-0 win against Nantes as he is building on his growing reputation.

Earlier in the summer, Everton have also showed their interest to sign the talented striker but the deal could not be done as the Merseyside club was unwilling to meet the £16.9 million asking price of Bordeaux.

European giants Bayern Munich are also keeping a close eye on the striker as they look to have a back up for Robert Lewandowski. Norwich and Brighton were also in attendance as a number of clubs across Europe are keeping tabs on the talented 23-year old striker.
