Agent claims Manchester United interest in Son

Manchester United were in talks to sign forward Heung-Min Son from Hamburg, according to the player’s official representative.

The South Korean completed a switch to Bayer Leverkusen in the summer transfer window, but only after a host of Europe’s top sides had expressed interest in his services.

Son’s agent claims that Manchester United were one of the suitors, having held talks with him prior to the player joining Bayer Leverkusen.

“Manchester United were very interested in him. We had already had talks,” agent Thies Bliemeister confessed to Bild.

In spite of the link with the Red Devils, the player eventually opted to continue his career in Bundesliga.

“The interest was a great honour for Son. But, Leverkusen just made a better impression. And, as a stepping stone, Bayer are ideal for his career now.”

Heung-Min Son joined Hamburg youth academy from Dongbuk High School in 2008, and he quickly managed to break into the first team set-up.

The South Korean went on to make 73 Bundesliga appearances for the Red Shorts, scoring 20 goals to earn a lucrative move to Bayer Leverkusen. He has already netted once in four league matches for his new club.
