Manchester United are reportedly set to lodge a £29m bid for Algeria ace Riyad Mahrez next month.

The 13-time Premier League champions, who surprisingly lost 2-1 at home to Norwich City on Saturday afternoon, have been keeping a close eye on the Leicester City winger throughout the 2015-16 campaign.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Foxes for just £400,000 last January from Le Havre, has scored a sensational 13 goals and assisted six others in just 16 league games to help Claudio Ranieri’s men top the table at Christmas.

With the likes of Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial struggling to find the back of the net on a frequent basis at Old Trafford this term, Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is desperate to sign a marquee forward during the forthcoming January transfer window.
