Amauri makes 'come and get me' Man Utd plea

"Milan, Barcelona, Juventus and now Chelsea," he smiled. "Oh and there is Real Madrid, who I forgot about. We'll see what happens%uFFFD"

Manchester United are one of the few big clubs who haven't been associated with a swoop, but Amauri has a cunning plan.

"I'll have a little word with Ferguson in a bid to get him to come and watch me play a few games for Palermo," he continued. "Then it might be possible for United to join the race%uFFFD"

Palermo boss Francesco Guidolin calls Amauri his very own Didier Drogba and he admits it's not the first time he's been compared to the Ivory Coast forward.

"Perhaps it is because of the hair," Amauri noted. "To be honest, my former teammates at Chievo used to say that I played like him."
