Manchester United are eyeing Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente. Sport says United are trying to land Llorente from Athletic Bilbao - on a free transfer in 2013.

The Spain centre-forward was outstanding in last season's Europa League ties and has refused to sign fresh terms in Bilbao.

Consequently, he could agree a pre-contract in January with a Barclays Premier League club and move for nothing in the summer.
