Asmir Begovic 'pleased' with interest from Manchester United
Stoke City goalkeeper has been linked with a summer transfer to Old Trafford
Asmir Begovic says he is “pleased” with reports that Manchester United are keeping tabs on him ahead of a possible summer transfer bid.
The Stoke City goalkeeper has been in tremendous form this season, and with uncertainty surrounding the future of current Manchester United No 1 David de Gea, Begovic has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old has insisted in the past that he is not inclined to leave the Brittania Stadium, a line he sticks by, but admits the reported interest is flattering.
"I'm not under more pressure because United are watching me," he told Bosnian media outlet Sport.ba.
"I'm glad that they do because that means I'm doing something good. It gives me more motivation to do better and better.
"I'm pleased that the big clubs are interested in me but as I have said many times - I'm happy at Stoke City because they gave me a chance do play in Premier League."
Despite affirming his happiness at his current club, the Bosnia and Herzegovina international was not able to guarantee his future remains at Stoke City.
"We will see what will happen in the summer. In football you can never know 100 per cent."
