Ferguson targets Kluivert

Kluivert scores in France 98 against Brazil

Dutch international Patrick Kluivert could be heading for Old Trafford.

AC Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani has confirmed the Italians have received and accepted Manchester United's £9m offer for the 22-year-old striker.

"We're happy with their bid," Galliani is reported to have said.

AC Milan's Sporting Director Arledo Braida is on his way to London to meet United officials.

United still have to agree personal terms with Kluivert. It was his reputed demand for a £500,000 signing-on fee that proved to be a stumbling block in a move to Arsenal.

Alex Ferguson pursued the player last season as he seeks a top-class frontman to boost his side's quest for European glory.
