Manchester United show Chamakh interest

Manchester United have been tracking the performances of Marouane Chamakh and could make a move for the Moroccan in January according to reports.

The Bordeaux forward courted interest from Sunderland, West Ham and, most notably, Arsenal in the summer but his dream move to the Premier League never materialised.

Yet a switch to England could now be back on with United scouts having watched the 25-year-old in action over the weekend.

Chamakh's contract at the French side expires in the summer, meaning a reasonable fee could be agreed.
