VIDEO: Free-kick stunner scored by Manchester United nearly-man

A player who almost became a Manchester United star bagged a stunner in Serie A this weekend.

Adem Ljajic is a player whose fortunes we have long been following, ever since he almost became a Manchester United player.

Having agreed to sign with the Red Devils, United pulled out of the deal in 2009 leaving the Serbian crestfallen.

He since joined Fiorentina, where he has endured a tricky time in the shadow of Stefan Jovetic, and even attacked by his former coach, but this season he has blossomed.

Ljajic is only 21, and scored his seventh Serie A goal of the season against Torino in a 4-3 win this weekend; and also racking up his seventh assist.

It's form which has even seen him linked with a Premier League return with Everton, but with this form who knows, United could even renew their interest one day.

Check out his David Beckham-esque free-kick below...
