Annan agent eyes Man United move

Ghanaian midfielder Anthony Annan could be set for a dream move to
 Manchester United, following a series of impressive displays for the Black Stars.

Speculation has also linked the powerful 23-year-old with
 Chelsea, Arsenal and Lyon.

Annan was an integral part of the Ghana side which reached the quarter-finals
 of this summer's World Cup.

GEAR: Get a Man United shirt

According to his agent, Lars Petter Fosdahl, Annan is wanted by a host of top clubs.

"There is interest from a few countries, and a few big clubs. It is a big ask moving from 
Norway to a top Premier League club, but people have succeeded in the 
past despite it being a massive task," Fosdahl told

Fosdahl cites the example of another of his clients, Mame Biram Diouf, who moved to Old Trafford and scored his first Premier League goal for the Red Devils against Burnley in January.

"It was only a year ago when Mame Biram Diouf went from Molde to Manchester United. I think he earned a lot of respect and he has become a more established
 player performing at a higher level. The move worked for him so why

However, should a move fail to materialise Fosdahl insists that Annan would be more than happy to remain at Rosenborg.

"He is focused and committed to Rosenborg at the moment and very patient. At 
the moment a move could happen this week, or at the end of August. We
 will have to wait and see."

The Red Devils' boss Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to strengthen his midfield options following another injury setback to Owen Hargreaves, with Anderson also sidelined and both Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes in the twilight years of their careers.
