Old Trafford star set for Loftus Road move.
Queens Park Rangers have tabled a £5million bid for Korean midfielder Ji-Sung Park and Manchester United are expected to accept it.
QPR boss Mark Hughes is an admirer of the 31-year-old midfielder and has been encouraged to make a bid by club owner Tony Fernandes who can see the marketing potential of signing a player from the Far East.
Fernandes is keen to exploit revenue streams in that part of the world for both the club and his Air Asia airline which operates flights to Seoul.

Ji-Sung Park has always been a player Sir Alex Ferguson turned to for big crunch matches, a player who could be counted on to put in a consistent shift across the midfield but over the past 18 months that hasn’t been the case, with the South Korean increasingly playing more of a bit part role at Old Trafford and a move to QPR may well be a good one for the 31 year old to consider as he looks to secure regular first team football.
Clearly QPR and Man United enjoy a good relationship, mainly due to the presence of former star Mark Hughes being at the Loftus Road helm, last term Federico Macheda made the move to West London on a temporary basis and Brazilian Fabio has done likewise for the coming campaign.
Mark Hughes has already brought in Robert Green this summer and has his eyes on Tottenham pair Jermain Defoe and William Gallas and the capture of Ji-Sung Park would greatly improve a squad that last term just about avoided the drop.
Ji-Sung Park joined Man United in the summer of 2005 and has made 203 appearances for the club and netted 27 goals. During his time at the club he has collected four Premier League winners medals and a Champions League triumph.
