Fulham boss Meulensteen admits Man Utd considered Norwich's Van Wolfswinkel

Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen admits Manchester United took a close look at Norwich City striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Meulensteen left United in the summer.

"We had definitely discussed him," said the Dutchman, who has overseen one win in four games since taking charge at Fulham.

"I don't think it was ever to the stage that we needed to do something as we obviously had fantastic strikers at the club and, at a club like Manchester United where you have got top, top strikers, when you bring someone in he needs to be better than you have already got."
