Krasic agent drops United hint

In-demand Serbia star Milos Krasic would be "stupid" to turn down the chance of a move to Manchester United in the view of his agent, Dejan Joksimovic. Krasic was named in his country's World Cup squad alongside Nemanja Vidic, having followed the Reds defender's path by moving to Russia to get additional experience of club football. It seems unlikely the 25-year-old will remain at CSKA Moscow for long though, with a number of Europe's leading clubs, including some from the Premier League, already showing an interest in the £15million-rated winger. As a non-English speaker, Krasic's preference would be Champions League finalists Bayern Munich, where his closest friend Ivica Olic plies his trade. However, the presence of Vidic would make Old Trafford only slightly less appealing for Krasic, who was part of the CSKA side that reached the quarter-finals of this season's Champions League. As the Russian domestic season runs throughout the summer, Krasic will have to take time out from his domestic duties to appear in the World Cup. But he wants his future clarified before he heads to South Africa. "It is possible CSKA will want to wait until after because his price might rise but Milos would prefer everything to be done before the World Cup," his agent Dejan Joksimovic said. "Bayern would be his first choice because his best friend is there, but the German league is also the weakest of the countries who could realistically afford him. "I must stress, Manchester United have not been in touch, but the attraction is there because of Vidic, and in Milos' opinion the Premier League remains the best in the world. "He would certainly be happy to test himself there. Let's be honest, you would be stupid to say no." Krasic is said to have turned down a move to Manchester City in January, although with Adam Johnson making such an impression since his arrival from Middlesbrough, it is unlikely Roberto Mancini would make a second effort to sign the wide-man. Would you like to see United move for Krasic? Have your say.
