The latest transfer rumour about Jamie Vardy could see him heading to Manchester

Get banged

Ah now, things are just getting ridiculous.

Let’s just deal in fact for the moment – Jamie Vardy is the Premier League’s top scorer.

Upto 2012, he was playing for Fleetwood Town where for most people, he was hard working and a decent striker for the levels well below the English top flight.

But now, after scoring 12 goals so far this season and on the cusp of history if he grabs another in his next game, the former Halifax Town man has been linked with a switch to Real Madrid as well as breaking through to the England squad…

Heady times indeed, but perhaps today’s speculation is the most fanciful of all.

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United are eyeing up the 28-year-old for a £15million pound bid which may come as soon as January.

United are looking to add another striker to their ranks and are believed to be reluctant to pay over the odds for Harry Kane – which means their attention has switched to Vardy…

We’re not sure how much truth there is in the rumour, but it may just show how desperate Louis van Gaal is for a proven goalscorer that the England man is even being linked with Old Trafford.
