Man United Injury Report vs Stoke City: Ibrahimovic, Valencia, Carrick, Bailly

Manchester United are eyeing a January swoop for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's recent dip in form.

Manchester United reportedly feel Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cruciate injury has hindered his comeback so they're now in the market for an attacker.

"Sanchez is an Arsenal player".

"But in relation to Alexis Sanchez I don't say a word".

United were said to have tabled a £25m offer for Arsenal's Sanchez on Thursday but rivals Manchester City remain at the front of the queue and are confident of securing his signature this month.

Meanwhile, Manchester United made a decision to travel to Dubai for warm weather training, but Ibrahimovic, on his part, didn't travel with the squad. He would also be eligible to play for United in the UEFA Champions League.

But the Telegraph are claiming that if that deal does not come off, then United will look to either Vardy or Hernandez.

As per Rob Tanner of the Leicester Mercury, Leicester City are reluctant to sell their star striker for any price - perhaps unsurprisingly; however, shall there be a price for the 30-year old, it may well be an enormous sum, making the possibility of a deal look even bleaker.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is keen to strengthen his attack this month and is looking for back-up options.

The Belgian poacher has had seen an ordinary second half of the season after kick-starting things in style for the Old Trafford outfit.

261 - Javier Hernandez has the 9th best minutes per goal ratio of players to score 20+ goals in Premier League history (143 mins/goal); although, the Mexican has only averaged a goal every 261 mins this term.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez who has failed to make an impact at West Ham is likely to be released by the Hammers.
