Now, it is claimed in Italy that United are keeping a watchful eye on its development ahead of the summer. They have plans to reduce the average age of their centre-forwards this summer and Abraham, 24, would certainly do just that.

Furthermore, it is claimed that it would take United to stump up a ‘huge offer’ to tempt Roma into a sale. He joined Jose Mourinho’s side on a five-year deal for £34million in August.

Playing a key role in their charge up the Championship table under manager Steve Cooper, Garner has been outstanding in midfield and become a firm fans’ favorite at the City Ground. The youngster starred once again on Sunday as Forest were knocked out of the FA Cup at the quarter-final stage by Liverpool, losing 1-0.

Scoring three goals and registering six assists in all competitions, Garner, who is understood to be targeting a first-team berth at Old Trafford next season, has been the glue that has made Forest rise from the bottom of the Championship table to just outside the play-off places. His importance to him has been glaringly obvious and the fans have fallen in love.

With 10 games to go, Forest, who have three games in hand on some of their nearest rivals, are just three points outside the play-off places and are one of the favorites to get promoted via the end-of-season play-offs . Should they go up, it is reported that they will look to try and prize Garner away from Old Trafford on a permanent basis.
