Pedro Obiang: Tied to a long-term contract but continues to draw admiring glance

The 20-year-old has become hot property on the back of a number of assured displays in Serie A.

Clubs from England have been credited with holding an interest in the Spain U21 international, who has been part of the first-team set-up at Samp for over two years now.

He is tied to a long-term contract with his current employers, and his representative claims fresh terms could be agreed.

A new deal is likely to be discussed when future talks are held next week, along with Sampdoria's summer plans for a man expected to generate plenty of transfer speculation.

Obiang's agent Jose Miguel Gonzalez told tuttomercatoweb.com: "The renewal of the contract is a possibility.

"I will come to see the Sampdoria-Parma match on 3rd March and then I'll meet the club's officials.

"We'll talk about Obiang's future, which will be decided together with Sampdoria.

"There are a lot of important clubs interested, but Obiang has a contract with Sampdoria until June 2016 so there is no reason to think about the market at this stage of the season."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
