United's Serbian starlet target on Premier League radars

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United target Adem Ljajic is attracting interest from the Barclays Premier League according to his agent.

The 20-year-old Serbian starlet has been linked with a move to Aston Villa and Everton, but his representative Giorgio Parretti feels the midfielder will better staying in Italy.

Ljajic is currently on the fringes of the Fiorentina first-team, but has made an impression with a series of cameo appearances in Serie A.

"He is training well but he has managed only two appearances," Parretti told Tuttomercatoweb. "Now let's see what will happen in the next three or four games.

"The important thing is that we are in tune with club, certainly he won't leave Fiorentina on loan."

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a known admirer of Ljajic - who was previously tipped for a move to Old Trafford, as United looked to strengthen their midfield ranks.

However, the fine form of Nani, and summer signing Ashley Young means a move to the reigning Barclays Premier League champions now looks unlikely as Ferguson has plenty of options in wide areas - with the likes of Antonio Valencia and Park Ji-Sung providing more than capable back-up for Manchester United.

"The interest of some English clubs flatters us," added his representative. "But I want to keep him in Italy because it is not the most beautiful championship but is the most difficult.

"Also he now has no problems with the Italian language, if I send him to England we have another difficult year."
