Man Utd plan £9m bid for Atalanta star

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a £9million bid for Atalanta youngster Manolo Gabbiadini.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has stated that he has no plans to bring in new players in January.

But Metro reports that Ferguson is a big admirer of the 19-year-old and could make a move in January.

Should Ferguson decide not to sign the youngster in January, he could make a move in the summer.
