The Daily Mirror are claiming 22-year old Christian Benteke is a January target for Manchester United. David Moyes wants to add more power and muscle up front, and is still worried about the prospect of losing Wayne Rooney to fellow English side Chelsea.
It is believed Moyes is a huge fan of Christian Benteke’s, and the Aston Villa striker was one of the reasons why the United boss watched his native Scotland take on Belgium on Friday night.
Benteke recently signed a contract extension at Villa, upping his wages to £60,000 a week, but if United come knocking for the striker, it’d be hard for Villa to stop any potential move from happening.
With United recently signing fellow Belgian Marouane Fellaini, and the youngster Adnan Januzaj from the same country, it seems United are trying to build their own little Belgian revolution which wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
