Manchester United & Tottenham keen on Portuguese playmaker

Danny (Zenit)Manchester United and Tottenham are both monitoring Zenit Saint-Petersburg midfielder Danny, according to reports from CalcioMercato.

The Portuguese playmaker has long been heralded as one of Russian football’s finest talents, and has been a key part of his side’s last two league victories.

His eye for the killer through ball and technical abilities have alerted both David Moyes and Andre Villas-Boas, with the pair looking to draft in midfield reinforcements in January.

United are known to be looking to add more creativity to their ranks, with Moyes worried about his side’s lack of guile in the final third.

At 30, Danny is no longer a young player, but the Red Devils chief is thought to believe that his experience can help to get his team’s season back on track after a stuttering opening few months.

AVB is also watching the Zenit ace, and has been buoyed by his compatriot’s 10 goals in 15 league games.

The White Hart Lane chief is also concerned about his side’s lack of edge in attack, and believes that another inventive source may aid their hopes of breaking into the top four.

Danny is thought to be available for around £10m.

Could Danny be the answer for Tottenham or Manchester United?
