27 year old Cagliari defender Astori is the subject of growing interest with the likes of AS Roma, Tottenham, Everton and Southampton all said to be keen on signing the former AC Milan man.
Astori is likely to be part of Cesare Prandelli’s 2014 World Cup finals squad though Man United would look to snap up the tough tackler before the tournament begins.
Man United will see Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand leave the club in the summer and urgently need to bring in fresh options at the back, not least as Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have not impressed when used in central defensive roles.
Such a move may have to wait until the Old Trafford side brings in a permanent successor to sacked Scot David Moyes, with Ryan Giggs holding the fort until the end of the current campaign.
Manchester United v Norwich City
Man Utd -1.50 Asian Handicap (2.00)
“This is a vital game for Norwich who are coming up against a Manchester United side with a new manager who will want to put the past week behind them. I am going to avoid the goal line and instead look to the match line where Norwich have lost 8 of their last 10 away to the top sides by 2 or more goals and the Canaries have also lost 8 of their last 14 away games by 2 or more goals. So my recommended trade for this game is Manchester United – (1.50) goals at around evens. ”
