Manchester United to Sign Fiorentina Midfielder

borja valeroManchester United are reportedly keen on Fiorentina midfield maestro Borja Valero, according to talkSPORT.

Valero has established himself as one of the best box-to-box midfielders in Italy and his attributes are something United are in desperate need of.

David Moyes is expected to have a £200m war-chest at his disposal this summer and he is willing to spend a fair bit of it on 29-year-old Spaniard Valero.

Valero had a stint in England a few years ago when he joined West Bromwich Albion, but failed to impress. He was subsequently sent out on loan to Real Mallorca and Villarreal before being snapped up permanently by the latter La Liga club in 2011.

He then impressed in Spain, before going on to join Fiorentina in Italy in 2012 where he has gone on to make a household name for himself.

David Moyes reportedly sent scouts to watch Fiorentina beat Udinese last weekend, however, there are reports he was keeping tabs on Valero’s team-mate, Juan Cuadrado.

Moyes would have been keen to know how Valero also got on during the win, but the Spanish midfielder was an unused substitute.

Moyes is looking to strengthen a number of positions this summer, with central midfield a particular area he wants to bolster.
