Man Utd eyeing Bolton midfielder Muamba

Manchester United are being linked with Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba.

Lancashire sources say United and Manchester City are monitoring the former Arsenal trainee.

It's been suggested United have enquired about Muamba after Bolton boss Owen Coyle revived his move for winger Tom Cleverley this week.

Muamba is tipped to make a senior England breakthrough this season and could be in United sights as Owen Hargreaves struggles to overcome long-term knee injury.
