Diouf closing in on Man United exit

Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf has confirmed he has received offers from eight clubs in this January transfer window and will make a decision on his future this week, Metro reports. Everton and Wigan are interested in the Senegalese international, as well as six other European sides.

The 24 year old has been granted permission to discuss a move with other clubs by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson after a frustrating season in which he has played only three times. Diouf spent last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers and scored six goals in a 29 game spell, but has failed to impress at Old Trafford. Diouf was signed from Molde by the reigning Premier League champions, but Ferguson is ready to let him move on quickly to another side.

Everton and Wigan are looking to take the Senegal striker on loan until the end of the season and have an option to buy him following the deal, but permanent offers are on the table from Europe. French side Brest are ready to pay £2m for the United striker and Diouf is weighing up his options. Diouf is contracted at Old Trafford until 2013 and Ferguson is hopeful the 24 year old can stay in the Premier League to continue his development, but not with United.

Diouf said: ‘There are several lines open, but nothing is decided. Everton, Wigan Athletic, Borussia Monchengladbach, Hannover, Nuremberg, Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim are all interested.’
