Manchester United target Martin Zbimendi wants a move to the Premier League if he decides to leave Real Sociedad this season.
Late last year, The People’s Person reported that the club were interested in the midfielder.
Many clubs across Europe soon became interested in him, including teams from Italy, France and Germany.
However, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo reports that the La Liga star wants to move to England to play in the Premier League.
It was recently reported that Arsenal were interested in Zvimendi, but he has turned down a deal for now as he wants to finish the season with his current club.
He has inserted a €60m (£52m) release clause into his contract.
At just 23 years old, the defensive midfielder has been in form for Real Sociedad this season.
His team is currently in third place, well positioned to finish in the top four for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
Zbimendi would be a great fit for Manchester United and a good fit for Eric ten Hug’s current set-up.
Casemiro is the most important defensive midfielder the club currently has, with Scott McTominay proving to be an unconvincing backup.
Zbimendi has the qualities to squeeze into a starting lineup and could use those qualities to squeeze into a defensive midfield role.
Zbimendi’s top-four finish may make United’s pursuit a little more difficult, but Ten Hag hopes he has enough resources to convince the Spanish player to sign.
The Red Devils are also comfortably positioned to finish inside the top four, so Champions League qualification could be enough to see Zubimnedy join the club next season.
