Roma striker Vucinic keen for Man Utd to make serious offer

Roma striker Mirko Vucinic hopes Manchester United make their interest concrete.

The Daily Mail says the 25-year-old has been on United's radar for the past two years after he scored against them in the Champions League quarter final back in 2007.

He is 6ft 1ins tall, quick and has the ability to play left wing as well as a central striker which would suit United following Cristiano Ronaldo's sale and Carlos Tevez's impending departure.

United scouts have watched him several times when he has scored vital goals in the Champions League against Real Madrid and Chelsea. There are reservations about his consistency but his goalscoring record is good.

Montenegro international Vucinic told Italian media last week that he had only heard rumours of United interest via the newspapers but he has since told team mates United are genuine and is hoping the Old Trafford club follow up with a firm offer.

Roma are in financial difficulties and would want around £15m for a player they paid Lecce £7m for in 2006.
