Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool & Valencia want Bojan

first_img 16/12/2015 Upd. at 19:32 It’s for that reason Bojan is once again interesting various clubs, clubs who are lining him up for next season. It will not be easy because the player is currently happy in Mark Hughes’ side and, in addition, he has a contract until 2018. But in football you never know. Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are all watching him. They consider him a very appealing player. The boy from Linyola has adapted well to English football and is proving he’s at the same level as the best players in the league.  Bojan has played 14 times this season, scoring three goals, but more than that, he has won the admiration of the Premier League due to his influence over Stoke’s play. He plays as a No.10 at the Britannia Stadium and has total freedom, allowing his best qualities to shine through.  Before a serious injury last season, Bojan Krkic was catching the attention of various clubs, one of them being one of the Premier League’s biggest sides. The injury, though, ended that interest. However, this season, after recovering, he has returned to form and is once again leading Stoke City, who are having a good campaign. center_img CET Ivan San Antonio But the three English clubs are not the only ones interested in Bojan. Valencia are also following him and Los Che are convinced he would be a perfect fit at Mestalla. Any one of the four could make a move for him in January, but it’s more likely the serious offers will arrive at the end of the season.last_img read more
