According to reports from the Daily Express, the Premier League giants have struggled with numerous injuries to their defence this season, and boss Louis Van Gaal is keen to add reinforcements in the January window.

Despite signing Luke Shaw from Southampton over the summer, the Dutchman is desperate to bring in another experienced left-back to provide the youngster with some much-needed competition.

United had been keeping tabs on former Chelsea and Arsenal star Ashley Cole, who seems destined to leave Roma after a disastrous few months, but according to reports are now prepared to make Carlo Ancelotti a lucrative offer for ex-Benfica man Coentrao, who has fallen behind Marcelo in the pecking order after sitting the last two months out with an injury.
