Park offered new United deal

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung is considering a two-year contract offer from the Old Trafford outfit.

The 30-year-old retired from international duty after last season's Asian Cup in an effort to prolong his club career.

And the reward is a contract extension Ferguson expects the South Korean to sign.

"We have offered him a new contract and I am sure he will sign it," said Ferguson.

"His career at United has been nothing but excellent. He is a tremendous professional.

"I am sure he will accept the new offer and tie himself down at the club for the next two years."

Park's present contract is due to expire in 2012 but after releasing Owen Hargreaves, in addition to Paul Scholes' retirement, Ferguson views the former PSV Eindhoven player as an essential member of his squad, who is about to embark on his seventh season at United.

Ferguson also confirmed he expects Darren Fletcher to be part of his squad again by the time United return to England on July 31.

The Scotland skipper managed just two appearances in the final two months of the season after being struck down by a virus that caused dramatic weight loss.
