Man Utd ready to sign Serie A defender

Zapata linked with Premier League move

Manchester United look set to lodge an offer for unsettled AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata.

The Rossoneri are expected to offload the Colombian international this month with his existing deal due to expire at the end of the season.

Italian sources claim that the Red Devils could sign up the 29-year-old on a cut-price deal during the winter transfer window.

Adding to this, the Mancunian giants are likely to face competition from league rivals Everton, who are also said to be monitoring the player's developments.

Zapata has fallen down the pecking order at Milan this season, with manager Sinisa Mihajlovic favouring Alessio Romagnoli and Alex for the central defensive partnership.
