Christofi is seen as one of Europe's hottest young talents. His £800,000 move from ENP FC to Omonoia was a domestic record in Cyprus despite the fact he is only 19.

With United having lost out on Cardiff's Aaron Ramsey, boss Sir Alex Ferguson is desperate to beat Arsene Wenger to the striker's signature.

Christofi has been capped by his country and Omonoia are keen to cash in on their star man to the tune of £3 million, says the People.
