Manchester United target Martin Zubimendi prefers a transfer to the Premier League if he decides to leave Real Sociedad this season.
Towards the end of last year, The Peoples Person reported that the club were interested in the midfielder.
Many clubs across Europe soon took an interest in him, including teams from Italy, France, and Germany.
However, MundoDeportivo, a Spanish outlet, reports that the La Liga star prefers to move to England to play in the Premier League.
It was recently reported that Arsenal were showing interest in Zubimendi, but he turned down the contract for now as he wants to complete the season with his current club.
He has a buyout clause inserted into his €60m (£52m) contract.
The defensive midfielder, just 23 years old, has been in top form at Real Sociedad this season.
His team is currently in third place and is in a good place to finish in the top four for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
Zubimendi would fit right in at Manchester United and suit Erik ten Hag’s current setup.
Casemiro is the most important defensive midfielder the club currently has, with Scott McTominay proving an unconvincing backup.
Zubimendi has the quality to break into the starting XI and could well step into the defensive midfielder role with the qualities he has.
A top-four finish for Zubimendi could make United’s quest a bit challenging, but Ten Hag hopes he has enough resources to convince the Spaniard.
With the Red Devils also in a comfortable position to finish in the top four, Champions League qualification could be enough to see Zubimnedi join the club next season.
