Agent of striker scouted by Moyes' brother denies offer has been made

Roman Bezjak’s agent has stated that Lodogorets have not received any bids for his client.

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a fruitful campaign for the two-time reigning Bulgarian A Group champions, leading the side in scoring with 11 goals in 19 domestic appearances and receiving his first cap for Slovenian national team back in August.

Bezjak’s latest exploits came on the continental stage as he netted twice over the two legs of Ludogorets’ 4-3 aggregate Europa League round of 32 defeat of Serie A giants Lazio.

The striker reportedly played the decisive 90 minutes of the tie under the eye of David Moyes’ brother, who had been dispatched to Razgrad with the express purpose of scouting the in-form hit man.

According to the Daily Mail, the scouting mission brought about the conclusion that Bezjak isn’t quite of the ilk required at Old Trafford, though the situation has appeared to remain open in the absence of confirmation.

Parma also had been named as a potential suitor for the breakout star of the Bulgarian outfit, with president Tommaso Ghirardi thought to be particularly keen on his services.

But Bezjak’s agent, Jorge Herrera Llagostera, has now seen fit to discuss the Slovenian’s prospects publicly - insisting that both United and Parma haven’t enquired as to his client’s availability.

“Roman has a contract with Lodogorets and as far as I know no formal offers have arrived from those allegedly involved,” he told Europacalcio.it.

“I can confirm that neither Manchester United nor Parma have contacted me or the club.

“In the event that the club reaches an agreement with any buyer, my client and I will examine every possibility.”
