United prepare to launch shock £8m midfielder move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are reportedly preparing an £8 million summer bid for Biram Kayal.

The Celtic midfielder is thought to have impressed a watching Sir Alex Ferguson during the Old Firm clash earlier in the month, with the Manchester United manager now monitoring the player closely.

"It's very flattering and heartwarming but at the moment I'm concentrating on winning the SPL title with Celtic and playing for them in the Champions League next season," said Kayal when speaking of the Manchester United interest.

"I'm going to have to carry on working hard if I want to get to the top."

Named SPL Player of the Month in January, the Jewish Times claims a bid will be 'launched' in the summer as the Red Devils look to add depth in the centre of the park.

"Nobody will be surprised if Biram plays for a club of United's stature one day. But the most important thing for him at the moment is to win the SPL title," said agent Dudu Dahan.

Signed from Maccabi Haifa in the summer, a string of impressive performances have led to the 22-year-old being linked with a switch across the pond.


A move to Old Trafford would continue the Israeli international's progression, and the tireless working midfielder is likely to be a hit with the Manchester United faithful given his style of play.

It is thought that an £8 million offer would be enough should Manchester United wish to move for the player at the end of the season.
