“It’s the football I really like and that fits me” – player admits amid interest from Manchester United

Lille defender Sven Botman is confident the Premier League would perfectly suit his style of play amid interest from Manchester United.

Bringing in a partner for captain Harry Maguire is a priority at Old Trafford, and Sky Sports claim Botman features high up on the club’s transfer shortlist.

Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, Atalanta’s Cristian Romero and Sevilla defender Jules Kounde are also targets.

“If I’m honest, the Premier League is one of the leagues I dreamed about… but also Serie A, La Liga, the Bundesliga,” Botman said as quoted by Daily Mail.

“The Premier League is something special. It’s the football I really like and that fits me.

“The style of play, the emotion; I really like to see the fans with such big emotions in the stands. It is a beautiful competition I really like to watch and did for pretty much all my life.”
