Beg kills Man U ‘done deal’ talk

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AS­MIR BE­GOVIC ad­mits he ex­pects

to be sold by Stoke in the sum­mer – but in­sists

a much-hyped move to Manch­ester United is not a done

deal. Stoke cap­tur ed 19-year-old Eng­land

goal­keeper Jack But­land on trans­fer dead­line

day and are now in a po­si­tion to let Be­govic

leave for £15mil­lion. United and Manch­ester City are

in the hunt to sign the highly-rated Bos­nian keeper, Old 25. T raf­ford boss Sir Alex Fer gu­son

wants to re­place the in­con­sis­tent David De

Gea in the sum­mer and sees Be­govic as the ideal re­place­ment. But Be­govic said: “I read in the

pa­pers that I said no to City and yes to United. But

thetruth is, I haven’t de­cided on any­thing. “I didn’t say yes or no to any­body.

I haven’t signed any­thing – no con­tract, no pre-con­tract. “But I be­lieve that Stoke didn’t

buy But­land to be a re­serve, so I think I will be sold

in the sum­mer. “I can’t move to a smaller club

and only the top clubs in­ter­ested in me can af­ford

the fee.”
