South African midfielder Quinton Fortune is mulling over a big money offer from an unnamed Japanese J League club.

Fortune's business manager Colin Gie has revealed that the Manchester United star had received a substantial offer from the Japanese club which would far outstrip his earnings with the Premiership club.

"They have expressed great interest after watching Quinton in action for South Africa," Gie said.

"Of course, people in Japan know him from playing for Man United, who are very big in the Far East," he added.

Fortune, who has six months left on his contract at Old Trafford, is due to have talks about a new contract with the English club when the new season starts .

"He would be in good position to secure a lucrative deal with any club of his choice when his contract with United is up so it's a matter of time before we decide on his future," Gie added.

Wanting to stay

According to Gie, several English Premiership clubs have also expressed an interest in Fortune.

However, the player himself has expressed his desire to stay at Man United.

"It's a great club to play for - I wouldn't want to move anywhere," he said.

"I'm settled in Manchester and I'm prepared to fight for my place."
