Old Trafford side keen on Inter Milan veteran.

ForzaItalianFootball report that Man United are eyeing up Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso.

The Serie A side are apparently looking to secure £18m from any potential sale of the Argentine international but that seems a very steep fee to pay for a player who just turned 32. The experienced midfielder may well be the ideal man to help add steel to the Old Trafford side but Sir Alex Ferguson is sure to look to pay far less for the bald patted battler.

Ferguson could feel the need to bring in a strong presence to boss his midfield as clearly veteran Paul Scholes is in the latter stages of his glittering career. The likes of Michael Carrick, Anderson and Darren Fletcher arguably do not offer as much as Cambiasso could in this regard and the former Real Madrid man may be tempted by a new challenge after eight years at the San Siro.

Inter Milan are experiencing something of a lean patch of late and even failed to qualify for the Champions League for this campaign and therefore Cambiasso may feel now is the right time to consider his options.

The strong tackling midfielder can work as an enforcer but also has an eye for goal and can drive onwards to link with the attack very effectively.

The Buenos Aires born veteran has notched up over 350 appearances for Inter Milan since his move to Italy in the summer of 2004, netting 43 goals in the process and winning a host of honours including five Serie A titles and a Champions League winners medal to boot.
