Fergie joins Liverpool and Spurs in Brazilian pursuit

Internacional striker Leandro DamiaoManchester United are lining up a bid for Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool target Leandro Damiao.

The Daily Mail reports, that Spurs failed in a £20m bid for the Brazilian who was also offered to Liverpool on loan.

United initially held talks with the 23 year old in February and have met with Damaio’s representatives on Monday to outline a potential January move.

Having finished as top-scorer in the Olympics the Internacional man is extremely highly rated and is likely to cost any potential suitors £24 million.

United already contain the most impressive striking options in English football, with Robin Van Persie adding to a frontline already boasting Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney.

It was another £24 million striker who bailed Sir Alex Ferguson’s men out against Southampton on Sunday with Robin Van Persie notching a hat-trick  to turn defeat in victory in the dying minutes at St Mary’s.

The Dutchman’s strikes coming in the 87th and 92nd minute respectively for a 3-2 win for the Red Devils.
