Manchester United could complete a shock loan move for Leicester City striker Islam Slimani, according to the MailOnline

The Red Devils are currently enduring a desperate time at the moment, hitting a bad run of form and their start striker Marcus Rashford out for at least six weeks with an injury.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had already taken a risk in the forward department having let Romelu Luaku and Alexis Sanchez leave in the summer without being replaced.

This has left just Rashford, Anthony Martial and youngster Mason Greenwood as the only recognised senior strikers at the football club.

Rashford sustained a stress fracture in United’s FA Cup replay win over Wolves.

The injury to Rashford, has sparked the club into life, but they have left it very late in the transfer window, with very few options available.

According to the Mail, Leicester City have told United they will have to pay a £4million loan fee for the player deemed surplus to requirements at the Foxes.

Algerian international Slimani is currently on loan at Ligue 1 side AS Monaco where he is in a rich vein of form, scoring seven goals in just 13 appearances.
