Il Corriere dello Sport is reporting that Premier League high-flyers Manchester United could be making a move on Lazio forward Balde Diao Keita.
The Senegalese striker appears to be looking for a way out and with his contract due to expire in June 2018, the winter transfer window could be a perfect opportunity for the Biancocelesti to secure a good deal for their prized asset.
This is one of the reasons why sporting director Igli Tare met with super agent Jorge Mendes in Dubai, as it is believed that Mendes can persuade Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho to submit a serious offer for Keita.
Lazio reportedly want around €30 million for the highly rated forward, but they will be forced to lower their demands if they fail to agree a new deal with the 21-year-old.
Keita has shown a great deal of potential since coming through the youth ranks at Stadio Olimpico, netting 15 times in 95 Serie A outings.
