Middlesbrough forward Viktor Fischer has admitted that he would be open to joining Manchester United should the English giants reignite their interest in him. However, the odds suggest the Dane will not be moving to Old Trafford anytime soon, at least according to Football Betting Tips.
“When I was 15, I played at FC Midtjylland. The next thing was my move to Ajax, and when I had played two years there, I would move to Manchester United and within a year be the best footballer in the world.
“At one point, you can see that this isn’t how the football world works. Unless your name is Lionel Messi.”
Fischer was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford two years ago but the move reportedly fell through after suffering a hamstring injury.
The 22-year-old recently joined Middlesbrough from Ajax over the summer has only featured five times so far this season under manager Aitor Karanka but is hoping to earn himself a regular spot in the Spaniard’s starting eleven as the season progresses. Before joining Boro, he scored 24 goals in 79 matches according to BBC. An indication that he will do well under the right manager and in a good midfield such as ours.
Speaking to Danish publication Tipsbladet Fischer admitted that he would be interested in joining Manchester United should the opportunity arise but went on to say he remains fully focused on matters at Middlesbrough for the time being.
Fischer’s superb finishing combined with his outstanding reading of the game makes him one of the most exciting young prospects in European football and is a player which Jose Mourinho could make a move for in the future should he continue to impress at Middlesbrough.
At twenty two years of age Fischer still has a lot to learn and in joining Middlesbrough it has allowed Fischer the chance to not only develop his game further but develop as a man also.
