Manchester United look set to spend this window as they look to secure a top 4 finish and help their lack of firepower upfront. A possible option for the Europa League club could be Albion striker Saido Berahino. The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from The Hawthorns since he threatened to never play for the club again in the summer. Since then he has featured in the first team but mostly on the bench. This has played a big factor in him only scoring 3 goals so far this season.

Albion rejected numerous bids from Tottenham last summer for the forward which were around the £20 million mark. It’s unclear what Albion’s stance is on Berahino but if the right bid come in it appears there wouldn’t be such a hard stance on the move now.

Saido Berahino isn’t the only name on United’s radar as the report also says they’re keeping tabs on QPR striker Charlie Austin.
