Manchester United transfer target Amar Dedic has responded to rumours linking him with a move to a top European club this summer.
The right-back, who is 20 years of age, has already represented current club RB Salzburg in the Champions League during his first season as a regular part of the senior squad.
Dedic appears to be the latest starlet to emerge from Salzburg’s youth setup, with the likes of Benjamin Sesko, Junior Adamu, Nicolas Seiwald all attracting the interest of top European clubs. Sesko has signed for RB Leipzig from next season.
But United reportedly want to steal a march on the German giants to acquire Dedic, with the right-back a potential alternative to Bayer Leverkusen wing-back Jeremie Frimpong.
Now, the player himself has reacted to transfer reports.
Dedic responds to Man Utd rumours
Speaking in a recent interview (via Austrian outlet Laola1), Dedic stated that it was ‘nice’ to hear links to top European clubs, with Barcelona also said to be keen on bringing him in this summer. However, the Bosnian added that he was fully focused on ending the season strongly with Salzburg.
He said: “This rumour doesn’t do anything to me. It’s nice to read, but my focus is totally on Salzburg.
“I wouldn’t be good if I thought about it too much. I want to play here and win titles, that’s clear.”
The right-back has a contract with the reigning Austrian Bundesliga champions until 2027, and faces a busy end to the current campaign.
Salzburg finished top of the regular season’s table, but now have four games to play in the league’s championship round. They currently sit four points ahead of second-placed Sturm Graz, with third-placed LASK also still in with a small chance of taking the title.
