Man Utd plan £12M Wanyama bid after latest scouting check

Manchester United are ready to table an offer for Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama.

The Daily Mail says the imposing Kenyan was the Scottish side's hero in Wednesday night's epic 2-1 defeat of Barcelona, scoring his side's first goal and negating the threat of Xavi and Andres Iniesta.

His performance was noted by United with chief European scout Martin Ferguson in attendance at Celtic Park to watch the 21-year-old impress once again.

Premier League clubs are likely to offer around £12m in January with United weighing up their move. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson wants another midfielder and Wanyama's age will also appeal.
