The Colombian has been in great form for the Spanish side this season, and is the highest scorer in La Liga outside of Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Atletico Madrid with 17 goals. He has 21 in all competitions, and these impressive stats would seem to have caught the eye of the Red Devils.

Manager Louis van Gaal is need of a new forward with Radamel Falcao’s loan coming to an end. Fellow striker Robin van Persie is also looking increasingly injury prone and could possibly leave soon according to the report. They have been linked with players such as PSG’s Edinson Cavani and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo in the past say the Metro, but this lesser known player seems to have caught their eye.

Arsenal and Liverpool have apparently also been scouting the 28-year-old, but it seems their Premier League rival has taken the lead in the transfer race.
