Argentinian ace on Fergie wish-list

Premier League leaders Manchester United are believed to be set to swoop for rising Argentinian star Nicolas Bertolo.

The 23-year-old Banfield attacking midfielder (pictured, left) is reported to be on, manager, Sir Alex Ferguson's summer wish-list, with Bertolo's club revealing they are awaiting an approach for their prize asset from the current English, European and World champions.

"I am aware of the subject and it is not unusual because the kid has had a good year," Banfield sporting director Hector Clide told TyC Sports.

"We expect news about this subject."

Bertolo, who is half owned by Banfield and half by former club Boca Juniors, is also a target for Serie A side Lazio, who attempted to take him to Italy on loan in January.
