Stoke City Keeper Asmir Begovic Happy to Be Attracting Man United Interest

Stoke City goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic is keen on a move away from the Britannia Stadium this summer, Sky Sports reports.

The Bosnian stopper has reacted favourably to news that the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all taken more than a passing interest in making a summer move for him.

It is reported that United sent a scouting party to Bosnia to watch him during his country’s 3-1 win over Greece on Friday and were impressed with what they saw.

United are said to be considering their goalkeeping options as Anders Lindegaard looks set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season and Alex Ferguson wants a capable performer to put pressure on David De Gea, who despite being in good form this year, still looks a little uncertain at the top level.

Begovic has been Stoke’s first choice custodian for three seasons now and has been consistently underrated for the bulk of that time. Having displaced veteran Thomas Sorensen, he’s been a key figure in Stoke’s rise up the Premier League table.

However, the highly rated Jack Butland is arriving in the summer and many expect him to go straight into Tony Pulis’ side.

The big Bosnian is keen to make the most of the attention and speculation, though; “I’m not under more pressure because United is watching me, I’m glad that they do because that mean I’m doing something good,” he said, “It gives me more motivation to do better and better.”
