Highly-rated Ghana youngster Sulley Muntari wants to quit Udinese and move to the English Premiership next season.
Sulley Muntari wants to play in the English Premiership
Muntari is one of the stand-out players in the Ghana World Cup squad and has
been touted as one of the best young midfielders in Europe.
The 21-year-old had trials with Manchester United as a teenager but the move collapsed due to work permit problems.
Muntari eventually joined the Italian Serie A club instead.
But, after four years in Italy, Muntari believes it is time for a change.
And following extensive chats with room-mate Michael Essien, he has set his heart on making the move to England once his World Cup commitments are over.
"I would love to play in the Premiership," he said. "It would make me very happy.
"I have been in Italy four years now and now I would like to try something else.
"When I was younger I had trials at Manchester United and if they came for me again it would be fantastic."
Although Muntari still has four years remaining on his current contract with Udinese, news of his desire to quit Italy for England is bound to alert a number of Premiership clubs.
