Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke is being linked with a £25million move to Manchester United this summer by a number of the British tabloids.
The 24-year-old has rediscovered his goalscoring in recent weeks and scored the equaliser in yesterday’s 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Liverpool.
Christian Benteke found the net 16 times in the Premier League in his debut campaign, but his development has been hampered by injuries since then.
Benteke has scored 12 times this season in all competitions this season, but nine of those goals have come in his last seven appearances for the club.
The Belgium international has scored eight goals in his last six Premier League appearances and has helped the Villans break clear of the relegation zone.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal may look to strengthen his strike-force with doubts over the futures of both Robin van Persie and on-loan Radamel Falcao.
Falcao has failed to impress during his spell on-loan from Monaco and it is doubtful that the Red Devils will make the Colombian’s loan deal a permanent one in the summer.
Van Persie has struggled to rediscover the form which helped United win the Premier League title in his first season with the club, as injuries have hampered his form. The Dutch star has been linked with a move to join Turkish giants Fenerbache this summer.
Christian Benteke has all the attributes to be a world-class striker and United look to be in need of a striker with his assets. The move could be a good one for both parties, but Villa would be losing their most dangerous attacking player.
