Man United rival Liverpool and Tottenham for £15m sensation

Manchester United have thrown their hat into the ring as the race to sign Jamie Vardy hots up, according to ESPN.

The Leicester forward is taking the Premier League by storm, after playing non-league football only five years ago.

The 28-year old became the first Englishman to score in nine consecutive Premier League games, and is one away from equalling Ruud van Nistelrooy’s all-time record of ten goals on the bounce.

Both Liverpool and Tottenham have been linked with the former Fleetwood Town man, though the Red Devils are now thought to be seriously interested in signing him.

The England forward is the top scorer this season with 12 strikes, as the Old Trafford outfit struggle in front of goal.

Captain Wayne Rooney has come under fire for his lack of form, netting twice all season, and the burden has largely fallen at the feet of £36.6m teenager Anthony Martial.

However, a £15m bid has been mooted for Vardy, whose rags to riches story has taken the Premier League by surprise.
