Sir Alex Ferguson was in the crowd as Paris Saint Germain beat Lille in the Coupe de France, as speculation mounts as to his summer transfer targets may be.

The Scottish tactician has been reassured that money will be made available to bring in fresh faces in the close-season and it has been suggested France could be where he chooses to use the Glazers' millions.

United have in the past bought from France with mixed success, as the likes of Gabriel Heinze, Patrice Evra and Eric Djemba-Djemba have all been plucked from Ligue 1 in recent years.

Lyon's midfield powerhouse Mahamadou Diarra has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford but Ferguson's appearance at Parc des Princes is sure to raise eyebrows further.

Lille midfielder Jean Makoun has previously been cited as a target, with the young Cameroon international having stated he was confident that United would bid for his services in the summer.

Likewise, PSG forward Bonaventure Kalou has also been linked and the 27-year-old Ivory Coast international could well have impressed having scored his side's first goal in a 2-1 success.
