Josh King still keen for Man Utd return and admits transfer would be “amazing”

Josh King insists it would be “amazing” if Manchester United were still interested in signing him after his dream move was initially scuppered.

The Red Devils failed with a £20million for the Bournemouth forward in January before they signed Odion Ighalo on loan.

King was on United’s books as a teenager and has always insisted it his dream to play for the club.

The 28-year-old is keen to leave the relegated Cherries this summer and has issued a come and get me plea to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I will not lie, because I really wanted to go there in January, but what happened, happened,” said King.

“I know why things happened. We’ll just have to wait and see. There is a lot that is open.

“I have a dream to play in the Champions League.

“Whether it will happen this season or in two years, I do not know. But I have a dream about it that all boys have.

“What if United are still interested? That would be amazing. I was at United for five years and I learned lot there.”

The Norwegian also defended his decision not to return from his homeland to pre-season training with Bournemouth.

He said: “It did not make any sense for me to go back to England and be in quarantine, and then come here and be in quarantine.

“I also had a baby in April that I had not seen in 10 weeks, so I was allowed to stay in Norway until the gathering.”

“I am at the national team training and focusing on these two matches,” he said.

“I do not know what will happen in the future. Now my focus is on the national team and the matches on Friday and Monday.

“I am in the situation I am in.”

It is thought that King has held talks with Tottenham, with Newcastle and AC Milan also said to be interested.
