Serie A star Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu reveals Manchester United admiration

Forza Udinese

The Udinese midfielder has stated he would choose Old Trafford as a Premier League destination.

Versatile Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has stated that he loves English football, revealing to Tutto Mercato Web that he is a Manchester United fan.

The 24-year-old has been on the Serie A club’s books since 2010, making over 115 domestic appearances in this time and growing in stature at the Italian club.

Agyemang-Badu is also a fully fledged Ghana international and despite only being 24 has already amassed 62 caps for the African nation, scoring ten goals in the process.

United have looked to revamp their midfield in recent times with the signings of deep-lying central players, but still look devoid of drive and purpose in wide areas.

The Udinese star has stated that he would relish a move to England in the future and spoke out about his love for the Red Devils.

“The Premier League? I love England and I love English football,” he told Tutto Mercato Web.

“I am a fan of Manchester United.”

Agyemang-Badu has started ten of Udinese’s 13 Serie A games this season, scoring three goals in the process for the Stadio Friuli outfit.

His comments show that United are still a majorly sought-after employer despite not winning silverware in recent years.
