Manchester United are reportedly considering a summer move for Lille defender Lucas Digne.
The 19-year-old has been in superb form this season to earn a regular spot in the Ligue 1 outfit's first team and has made 25 appearances in all competitions so far. And, according to Tutto Mercato Web, the Red Devils are now planning an approach for the left-back at the end of the season.
Digne had recently signed a contract extension with Rudi Garcia's side. The report claims that Serie A champions Juventus are also monitoring the France U-19 international.
The Lille star was scouted by United and Chelsea back in October. Sir Alex Ferguson is pursuing a long-term successor to the in-form but aging Patrice Evra, with Alexander Buttner currently serving as the Frenchman's back-up.
The Blues, on the other hand, have been looking at several left-back options, as cover to Ashley Cole, with his understudy Ryan Bertrand evolving more as winger than a full-back. Meanwhile, Real Madrid are also understood to be interested in Digne.
RVP: I was Unlucky
United striker Robin van Persie is confident his long spells on the sidelines are behind him and feels he was unlucky with his injury record of the past.
The Dutchman's career was plagued by injuries till the last two years, with the former Arsenal man being out of action for a significant time almost every season. However, the 29-year-old has not been in the treatment room since 2010 and made his 71st consecutive Premier League appearance in the Red Devils match against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane at the weekend.
"If you go back to my injuries, people just look at stats and for a couple of years those stats weren't great. But most of those injuries were impact injuries, they can happen. It was mostly unlucky. I don't think it was me to blame, or the club medical staff to blame. I was just unlucky," van Persie told ESPN.
