Man United eyeing move for unsettled AC Milan star

Manchester United are plotting a January move for AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata, according to reports from Metro.

Although the attacking third has been labelled as Louis van Gaal’s problem area in recent weeks, the Dutchman has also been forced into some tricky decisions in defence due to a series of injuries.

A startlingly weak backline at Bournemouth – containing Paddy McNair, Daley Blind, Guillermo Varela and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson – raised concerns, and subsequent losses at the hands of sides such as Norwich have contributed to United’s slide out of the top four.

And reports claim that the club are looking to react when the transfer window opens, with Milan’s Zapata an option.

The Colombia international is thought to be looking for a San Siro escape route after finding his playing time restricted this season, with England an enticing option.

The 29-year-old is known for his pace and power, although his positional awareness and reading of the game have been questioned in the past.
