Sulley Muntari has issued a "come and get me" plea to Manchester United.
Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has issued a "come and get me" plea to Manchester United.
The African ace had a trial at Old Trafford earlier in his career and still craves a crack at Premiership football.
Although under contract at Udinese, the hard-running 21-year-old star has spoken of his determination to head for England.
"I would love to play in The Premiership," he stated. "It would make me very happy.
"I have been in Italy four years now and now I would like to try something else.
"When I was younger I had trials at Manchester United and, if they came in for me again, it would be fantastic.
"I would like to go to United if possible as they're one of the greatest teams in Europe and the world. If am I called there, I would be very glad."
Muntari's impressive showing against Italy will only help his cause of attracting Premiership scouts.
International colleague Michael Essien's experiences at Chelsea have helped convince Muntari to push for a move to The Premiership.
"We've been speaking together since he joined Chelsea," revealed the Udine youngster.
"I asked him how the football is there and he said he's loving it and it's great.
"He made me feel like I'm lost."
