The 22-year-old held talks with Newcastle about joining the Premier League club from Hertha Berlin, but he instead opted for a move to Hamburg, where he spent last season on loan.

However, Lasogga says playing in England remains a target for him after he has helped to rebuild a Hamburg side which narrowly avoided relegation from the Bundesliga last term.

Lasogga told BILD: "There is no doubt I have a long-term deal with Hamburg as I want to help the club build a strong new team.

"I know I am an important part of their plans for the future. I am a realist, this won't work in two days. This will need years of hard work.

"Anyway, at some point of my career I want to move to a club in England."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
