Manchester United and Arsenal offers rejected by striker

Published Add your comment

Manchester United and Arsenal both offered Valmir Berisha the opportunity to undertake a trial only for the Swedish striker to resist their advances, although he claims a move to England remains his ambition.

The teenager is being dubbed the 'new Zlatan Ibrahimovic' and topped the goalscoring charts at the Under-17 World Cup in the summer. Unsurprisingly, this fine form has led to interest from the Premier League.

United and Arsenal are the latest clubs to have moved for Berisha, with the 17-year-old asked by both sides to undertake a trial period before the potential offer of any deal.

However, David Moyes and Arsene Wenger have seen their offers refused in this instance but, although Real Madrid remains his favoured choice, Berisha believes the Premier League would be the most beneficial for his career.

"The most important is the football education, I believe England would be the best option," the Halmstads youngster told Sportbladet.

"But I have rejected other clubs who have invited me for trials. For example, Arsenal and Manchester United. It is Real Madrid now, the club of my dreams.

"I am keen to go there, but I think I will turn it down, unfortunately. I do not know, maybe I will go there anyway."

Along with Manchester United and Arsenal, Berisha also claims to have attracted interest from Liverpool, Sunderland, Tottenham and Celtic.
