LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Manchester United have been linked with a transfer move for FC Nordsjælland Jores Okore and it is believed that the defender is “flattered” by the news.
The January window is set to reopen in less than a week and a number transfer speculations have seen several types of players, including Okore, being linked with Manchester United.
However, the agent of Okore, who was recommended by former Red Devils goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, has admitted the Denmark star would welcome a move to Old Trafford.
“I am flattered and I am sure that Jores is flattered too,” Nikola Juric reportedly told bold.dk. “I believe that there are a lot of clubs interested in Jores but I have not heard anything from Manchester United.
“I only know that Peter Schmeichel has recommend Jores to Alex Ferguson.
“It is normal for teams in England to use two types of defenders, a stopper and a ball-playing defender like Daniel Agger.
“There are not a lot of these ball-playing defenders like Jores available.
“There is interest from Russia, England, Germany, France and the two big clubs in Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Kiev and Jores is open for anything.
“The most important thing for him is that any potential suitor really believes in him.”
