Manchester United & Chelsea target & midfield wonderkid addresses transfer rumours

Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic has once again discussed his future in light of rumours linking him with a move away from Red Star Belgrade.

Both Premier League heavyweights Manchester United and Chelsea were reportedly interested in the youngster according to The Guardian in October, while L’Equipe also noted that Paris Saint-Germain were interested in the 19-year-old.

According to Le 10 Sport, Inter Milan are also understood to be eyeing the midfielder, although Grujic’s latest comments have suggested that the Italian heavyweights will be forced to wait to bring the Eastern European starlet to Lombardy.

Last month, Grujic spoke to Serbian daily Novosti [as per Le 10 Sport] to indicate that he was happy where he was, and as reported by FC Inter News [again as per Le 10 Sport], the midfielder has again insisted that he is keen to stay in his homeland for the time being.

“Inter Milan? In Serbia, the media talk about these rumours,” the wonderkid began. “Inter Milan is a great club with great players from the Balkans, and so one day it would please me to wear the shirt of Inter Milan.

“However, in the immediate future, I prefer to stay at Red Star,” he continued, “until the end of the season, in order to win the title.”

L’Equipe (as above) understood that PSG were keen on the midfielder while Hamburg have also been linked to the youngster’s signature, according to The Guardian, and are understood to have made a £1.2 million bid for his services.

Grujic is not a dissimilar player to his compatriot Nemanja Matic, who is currently enduring a troubled season at Chelsea. Jose Mourinho may see the youngster as a long-term upgrade on his fellow Serbian.
