Manchester United are being linked with Espanyol defender Hector Moreno.

The Daily Express says Moreno - a teammate of United striker Javier Hernandez at international level with Mexico - is set to leave Espanyol this summer after three seasons in Barcelona.

The player's agent, Eduardo Hernandez, said: "Moreno is leaving Espanyol. He wants to leave and we're looking for another team in Europe."

While Inter Milan are interested in pairing Moreno with Vidic in a new-look centre defensive partnership in Serie A next season, United are also interested in the defender.
