Leicester City international wideman admits he’d be up for Manchester United move anytime

Leicester City‘s Jeffrey Schlupp has admitted that he wouldn’t be able to turn down a move to Manchester United should the Red Devils come calling.

Speaking to the Mirror, Schlupp—who once had an unsuccessful trial with the Old Trafford giants—has admitted that he’d be open to a switch to United anytime.

“I don’t think I could ever turn down a move to Manchester United,” the Ghana international began, speaking to the tabloid, reflecting on his brief stint with United, “but I didn’t get the opportunity at the time. The trial I had moulded me into the player I am today.”

Schlupp ultimately spent six weeks at United during the 2012-13 season, and while it remains to be seen whether he would have been kept on had Sir Alex Ferguson remained at the club, the Scot’s retirement appears to have scuppered the wideman’s chances of an extended stay with the club.

Instead, the Hamburg-born 23-year-old returned to Leicester, the club he joined as a youth prospect in 2005, before making his senior debut five years later.

No one could have imagined—back in 2013—when United lifted their last EPL title, that Schlupp and the Foxes would win the English crown before the Red Devils reclaimed their title, yet the East Midlanders did just that on Monday night.
