Milos Krasic’s performances against Manchester United have alerted scouts across Europe ahead of Januarys’ transfer window.
The CSKA Moscow schemer put in two action-packed displays against the Premier League champions and capped his outings with a goal in the 3-3 Champions League draw at Old Trafford.
Krasic’s ball-carrying ability reportedly caught the eye of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson and he is already on the agenda for several clubs across Europe.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder or winger has electric pace and close control which has drawn comparisons to Pavel Nedved and Sir Alex could be weighing up an approach.
United already have Krasic’s Serbia team-mate Nemanja Vidic on the books at Old Trafford after landing the centre-back from Spartak Moscow for Â£7million back in January 2006. And Ferguson has been highly impressed with Vidic and the manner in which he has settled into life in the Premier League and might be persuaded to make another delve into the Russian league to pick up another gem to further improve their Premier League odds.
Krasic moved to Russia in 2004 after CSKA snapped him up from Vojvodina – where he was already captain.
He has since become an integral part of the CSKA side and one of the most highly-rated forwards in Russia and the Moscow men will look for a fee in the region of Â£8million for the player.
Paris Saint Germain, Hamburg, Werder Bremen, Porto and Portsmouth are all credited with an interest in Krasic, who still has three years to run on his contract with CSKA, but he is likely to be offered fresh terms in a bid to secure him to the Russian side.
