David Moyes is keen to bring in creative talents this month and has set his sights on the the highly rated Turkish international, who has played a pivotal role in the Vicente Calderon side’s rise to prominence over the past couple of years.

The 26 year old winger is into his third season at Atletico Madrid and is a key performer in Diego Simeone’s side who could perhaps feel he has gone as far as he can at the La Liga over-achievers and a move to Old Trafford could tempt the former Galatasaray star.

With the likes of Nani, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia failing to impress this season one can see why Moyes would target Turan, who was at his imperious best last weekend against Barcelona though perhaps a summer move would prove more likely given that the flair player would be cup tied from Champions League action.

Moyes will surely be handed significant funds this month to help boost his squad as they push to salvage something from what has proven a very difficult first season in charge of Man United.
