Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently considering a move for Brazilian international striker Luis Fabiano this summer as he looks to offer Wayne Rooney effective support in attack. The Sevilla forward has been linked with a move away from the La Liga side and may well be keen on a move to the Premier League club and it seems the only major obstacle in the way of such a move could be heavy debts the club are in.

The 29 year old former Porto flop has been an incredible success at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, netting 87 goals over the past four seasons, but could well be ready for a new challenge and would surely be tempted by a move to Man United.

Valued at around £22m the large financial crisis Ferguson’s club finds itself in could affect any potential additions and it seems likely that the club will have to sell before they can buy. The likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Anderson and Michael Carrick have been linked with moves away from Old Trafford.

AC Milan have also been linked with a move for Luis Fabiano, who has already netted twice in South Africa, but given that the San Siro side do not currently even have a manager in position a move to Man United may be more realistic.
