Manchester United are eyeing a move for AS Roma defender Mehdi Benatia.

The Daily Star says United boss Louis Van Gaal could also be ready to splash the cash to land Roma star Benatia.

United are reportedly willing to meet the Serie A side's £30million asking price to secure Benatia's signature.

United have turned to Benatia after failing to agree a fee for World Cup winner Mats Hummels with Borussia Dortmund.
