Manchester United have not exactly been goal shy this season.
The reigning Premier League champions have scored 37 goals in the league so far this season. Only local rivals and current league-leaders Manchester City have scored more, with their highly impressive haul of 50.
United's big problems may be in midfield, but with Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen out of favour, Danny Welbeck not scoring domestically for nearly three months and Federico Macheda still looking nowhere near the player people thought the club had on their hands after his scintillating first-team debut, they could certainly do with adding firepower in attack if they are to boost their hopes of usurping City.
