According to tuttomercatoweb Manchester United have a watching brief on Catania hitman Maxi Lopez.

The player, who failed to impress at Barcelona between 2005 and 2007, joined the Sicilian side midway through last season after a successful loan spell at Gremio and has kept up his good form for the Etnei with 12 goals in 21 appearances.

However, sporting director Pietro Lo Monaco recently suggested that the club would not be rushed into considering any offers for the striker and he is unlikely to leave in January.

The Italian outfit signed the player on a four-year contract in January 2010.
