Agent confirms Man United interested in his client tonight, defender possibly joining
Claims have emerged in the British media that Manchester United are interested in signing Omar Elabdellaoui from Greek club Olympiakos this evening. The 24 year old is no stranger to Manchester, having been with Manchester City for a couple of years earlier on in his career.
He's a right back, and signed for the Greek club in 2014, Elabdellaoui is also a Norwegian international. There would be no problem on a work permit, with Norwegians not required to get one.
Normally we'd dismiss this immediately as end of window nonsense, but SDNA say they've spoken to the player's agent Jim Solbakken, who has confirmed the Manchester United interest. SDNA also tried to get confirmation from Olympiakos, but the club wouldn't provide a confirmation or denial.
Solbakken is quoted as saying: The interest of Manchester United is in place. Please, we'll see what happens during the night."
