Manchester United join Leicester in race for £18.9m attacker

Manchester United have joined Leicester City in the race to sign CSKA Moscow striker Ahmed Musa, according to reports from the Express.

Musa has been heavily linked with a move away from CSKA in recent weeks, with the Foxes keen on the Nigeria international.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri is hoping to bolster his squad for the second half of the season, and has targeted a striker to ease the burden on in-form star Jamie Vardy up front.

The league leaders reportedly submitted a bid in the region of £15.1m, but the Russian club are hoping to receive at least £18.9m for his services.

However, the King Power Stadium side are set to be joined by Premier League powerhouse Man United in the race for his signature, with under-fire boss Louis van Gaal looking to add some impetus into his misfiring attack.

Musa, 23, has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring 10 goals.
