Manchester United are believed to interested in signing the playmaker - possibly as cover for Juan Sebastian Veron should the Argentine leave Old Trafford for Italy.

Diop has been one of the discoveries of the World Cup and if Manchester United do not sign him, it is highly likely another English club will come in for the Lens player.
