Man United line up shock move for Newcastle striker Ayoze Perez in January

Manchester United are said to be lining up a shock move for Newcastle United striker Ayoze Perez when the transfer window opens in January, according to the Metro.

The 22-year-old was a standout performer for The Magpies last season, and despite the club’s struggles in the early part of this campaign, he has remained their brightest spark – so much so that Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal is keeping a close eye on him.

New striker Anthony Martial has been a revelation since joining United on transfer deadline day, but with usual star man Wayne Rooney looking a shadow of his former self, van Gaal is reported to be looking for reinforcements in the new year (via Metro).

And a report in the Newcastle Chronicle, the Dutchman is keeping his tabs on the Spaniard, who was also linked with a summer switch to Tottenham (via Metro).
